PanARMENIAN.Net - Chairwoman of the Armenian Civil Aviation Committee Tatevik Revazyan said on Thursday, February 13 that the passenger flow from Armenia is not sufficient for launching direct flights between Yerevan and Los Angeles.
Revazyan said the Armenian side is working with Georgia on the matter.

“It’s just that they are interested in New York, while we are focused on Los Angeles.”
