The US embassy in Armenia has banned its employees from traveling on board any Armenian airline, and urged its citizens to do the same, according to 168.am.
“In June 2020, 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. 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,” it is said in the respective message of the embassy, 168.am reported.
