Tuesday, August 22
“Armenia and China are likely to sign a new interstate agreement on opening of a direct flight, head of civil aviation department,” Sergey Avetisyan told reporters on Thursday after Armenian government session.

He noted that he had held a meeting with Chinese representatives several weeks ago.

“We signed a document taking a step forward for the liberalization of markets and regulation of legal frameworks. I scheduled a visit to China and a meeting with their aviation authorities for this autumn. If possible, we will sign a new interstate agreement. I will also meet representatives of the Chinese airlines to discuss the possible implementation of Armenia-China flights," Avetisyan said.

He added that Armenia's Zvartnots Airport can accept a large number of passengers and any types of plane.
