Key challenges for Armenia's aviation sector
The European association of airport operators ACI Europe held several meetings with the government of Armenia, its national assembly, and its civil aviation committee in Yerevan last week.
These meetings reviewed the challenges faced by Armenia in capitalising on the fast recovery of its air traffic, and further developing air connectivity in a sustainable way to support its economy.
Olivier Jankovec (third from right), director general of ACI Europe, urged the Armenian government to approve the planned expansion of Yerevan-Zvartnots Airport (EVN), as the airport is fast reaching its capacity limits: "A total of EUR 400 million is ready to be invested to double the airport’s capacity for both passenger and cargo traffic. Delaying this project further will only hold back the country and its economy." (ah)
