YEREVAN, MARCH 28. ARMINFO. Mar 25 Turkey refused to provide air corridor to an Armavia plane flying from Aleppo to Yerevan.
Armavia PR executive Garik Siroyan says that as a result the plane was forced to fly via Kuwait, Saudi Arabia and Iran.
When flying to Europe Armavia uses alternative directions via Russia and Ukraine which is more expensive than to fly via Turkey.
Turkey said that it had technical reasons for the ban and Monday allowed to use its air space till the end of this year.
This is not the first time though. When being the national air carrier of Armenia the Armenian Airlines company repeatedly faced similar problems.
