Zvartnots airport resumes services to Armavia

Armenia International Airports CJSC (Zvartnots) resumed services to Armavia company 4:30 pm, local time, the airport’s spokesman said.
“Armavia has transferred AMD 90 mln to Zvartnots. Details on the airport’s servicing of the air company flights will be clarified tomorrow, 11:00 am,” Gevorg Abrahamyan told a PanARMENIAN.Net reporter.
Dwelling on Armavia’s statement suggesting Zvartnots disapproves of the company’s new shareholder, the spokesman said the airport is unaware who the shareholder is.
“We ourselves would like to know his name to specify further relations with the air company,” he said.
Armenian national carrier Armavia has refused to reveal the name of the new shareholder of the company.
“That’s a business secret. We will announce the name when the time comes,” the company’s representative told a PanARMENIAN.Net reporter, conditioning the suspension of Zvartnots airport’s services to Armavia by the airport’s disapproval of the new shareholder.
Meanwhile, Zvartnots noted Armavia’s debts as the main reason behind the airport’s decision to halt servicing of the air company flights. The amount of Armavia’s debt exceeded the sum agreed on for over $1 million, bringing the total debt to $3,360 million.
As Armenian media outlets reported earlier, either owner of Zvartnots airport, Argentinean Armenian entrepreneur Eduardo Eurnekian, or Armenian president’s son-in-law Mikael Minasyan planned to purchase Armavia.
