Reporters asked the vice-director of Armenia International Airports
CJSC why the fees of the Armenian airport are higher than those in
European countries. Andranik Shkhyan said they follow the task of
the government to be competitive in the region.

Shekhyan said after ten years from this instruction, Armenia has an
ultramodern airport which is competitive with those of Tbilisi and Baku
in terms of prices and quality of service. Andranik Shkhyan also noted
that it is wrong to compare the fees charged by the Armenian airport
with the fees of the European airports because they serve much more
passengers. But he added that the Armenian airport is competitive
with the airport of Prague, for example.

The taxes of most airports are 15% maximum, said Shkhyan adding that
the taxes have no impact on the costs of the company.

The reporters asked whether the airport is considering buying Armavia
once it is sold. Andranik Shkhyan said they have not been informed
and they will consider it once they are informed. He said that the
conditions they provide now will improve the company.
