HEAD OF ARMAVIA AIRLINE DISAGREES WITH IAC CONCLUSIONS

Yerevan, August 23. ArmInfo. Head of the Armenian national airline
Armavia, Mikhail Baghdasarov, categorically disagrees with the
conclusions of the International Aviation Committee (IAC) on the
results of the investigation of A- 320 crash near Sochi on May 3. To
recap, under IAC made a conclusion that the reason of the crash was
human factor, i.e. the faults of the crew.

In an interview to Haykakan Zhamanak, M. Baghdasarov says: "What
was shown to us was not right." He says none of the Armenian party
representatives participating in the investigation have signed any
document so far. In such conditions, no final resolution is possible,
he says. The fact that IAC published its version of the resolution
is a gross violation of international aviation rules. Under these
rules, a resolution on the results of a crash investigation is made
subject to the fact that the resolution is final. While, it requires
signatures of all the parties of the investigation, Baghdasarov says.
