Armenian parliament has discussed the draft law over lifting air taxes issue for airlines on Friday.
It has been presented by the head of the Armenian Civil Aviation Committee Tatevik Revazian.
According to the bill, it is proposed to provide tax incentives to new and already existing air carriers in Armenia in case of opening new directions. In particular, this refers to the abolition of the so-called “air tax”, which was subsequently included in the price of tickets. The tax benefit will be provided to airlines for a period of three years, and then, if necessary, extended for another two years.
According to Revazian, this will increase the country's investment attractiveness and create new jobs.
