YEREVAN. - By way of Armenia's Embassy in Egypt, the Armenian
tourists, who are currently in that country, have been placed in a
hotel, Armenian MFA Information and Public Relations Department told
Armenian News-NEWS.am.

`In this way, the Egyptian side acquiesced until the Armenian travel
agency pays its debt,' the MFA informed.

As Armenian News-NEWS.am informed earlier, many Armenians, who are
enjoying their vacation in Sharm el-Sheikh, Egypt, may not be able to
return Yerevan as the Spot Air charter company cancelled the flight
from Sharm el-Sheikh to Yerevan due to the debts by Happy Voyage
company tour operator, Spot Air informed Armenian News-NEWS.am.

Earlier Armenian News-NEWS.am informed about the scandal in Yerevan
airport, as Happy Voyage company, which has sold the Sharm el-Sheikh
tickets to over 140 passengers from Yerevan, could not secure the
flight for its passengers. The Happy Voyage has been warned about the
possibility of flight cancellation by Sport Air charter company
several times prior to the incident, Spot Air representative said.
