U.S. govt personnel can't fly with Armenian carriers for official travel

PanARMENIAN.Net - United States government personnel in Armenia are prohibited from using Armenian air carriers for official travel, according to a security alert issued by the U.S. Embassy in Yerevan.

The move comes after the European Union (EU) added all Armenian air carriers to the EU Air Safety List due to concerns about safety oversight of air carriers certified in Armenia.

This designation, which will remain in place at least through 2022, effectively bans all Armenian air carriers from flying into or within EU countries.

"Given this assessment, U.S. government personnel in Armenia are prohibited from using Armenian air carriers for official travel," the Embassy said Thursday, July 13.

"This includes, but is not limited to, the following entities: Aircompany Armenia, Armenia Airways, Armenian Helicopters, Atlantis Armenian Airlines, Atlantis European Airways, Mars Avia, and Skyball."
