Araik Abgaryan: Armenian aviation security high

Armenia replaced soviet-era planes by Airbuses and Boeings, head of the Armaeronavigation security audit division said.
“I wouldn’t say that soviet planes are bad, but they do not meet European standards,” Araik Abgaryan told journalists on December 6.
“The level of aviation security in Armenia is high, with all of 13 jets undergoing technical tests periodically. Moreover, the country is leading among the other CIS member states,” Abgaryan said.
Asked why Zvartnots airport is not used as transit destination, Abgaryan said that as soon as a new terminal is ready, Armenia will be able to operate transit flights.
He also informed that currently Armavia is negotiating the possibility of Armenia-U.S. direct flights.
