YEREVAN.- Syrian Armenians say they cannot come to Armenia because of high ticket prices.

Hripsime Margaryan, head of sub-committee on youth affairs at Armenia’s public council, said they cannot come to Armenia because of high prices set by national carrier Armavia.

“We must create a system of discounts,” she said at a press conference on Saturday urging to address Armenia’s Ministry of Transport and Communication (photos).

Syrian-Armenian economist Harut Palulian also expressed discontent with services provided by Armenian carrier. The ticket price for the first flight, carried out after a break, went up by $150.

Armavia’s Aleppo-Yerevan- Aleppo ticket prices is $670, while Syrian companies offer the same flight at only $470, he said adding that Syrian companies’ tickets are sold out.

Harut said he wants to live and work in Armenia and had already torn his return ticket.

Speaking about Syria, he said the Armenian community will occur in a difficult situation if the government changes.

Armavia has resumed flights to Aleppo since July 2.
