Arkia' Given Permission to Fly to Armenia


Transportation, Road Safety and Infrastructure Minister Yisrael Katz approved, Sunday, Arkia' Airlines' application to fly between Ben-Gurion International Airport and Yerevan, the capital of Armenia. The route has existed since 1997 under an agreement between Israel and Armenia but has only been serviced, until now, by Armenia airline Armavia.

Minister Katz said the granting of the route was part of liberalization in the airline industry.
