Information about preventing Russian citizen Sergey Gyurdjian to
fly via Moscow - Baku flight of the CJSC "Azerbaijan Airlines",
in the form how the passenger described, is not true, CJSC "AZAL"
spokesman Maharram Safarli told Trend on Monday.

Safarli said Gyurdjian was informed that he needs guarantees for his
safety in order to visit Azerbaijan, as he is an Armenian by origin.

This caused his strong reaction, as well as those flying with him.

They began to insult AZAL employees, which displeased passengers
registered for the flight.

Because of inappropriate behavior of Gyurdjian and passengers flying
together with him they were removed from the flight, for which the
airline carrying out the flight has full right.

Gyurdjian, employee of the company "AvtoVAZ", was in the delegation
leaving for Baku for opening of a new Lada showroom.
