The airports in the southern part of Armenia are inventoried, Syunik Region Deputy Governor Ara Dolunts told
In his words, a delegation from the Armenian General Department of Civil Aviation (GDCA) was in the Region a short time ago. And on Wednesday, the ruling Republican Party’s presidential candidate—and incumbent President—Serzh Sargsyan spoke with the voters at Kajaran city of Syunik Region and stated that the matter of restoring the Kapan city airport is being discussed and, moreover, the two mining companies in the area have expressed their willingness to provide respective financial assistance.
The GDCA experts visited all civil aviation airports of Syunik Region, namely, in the Sisian, Goris, Kapan, and Meghri cities.
“The GDCA will inform more precisely about the time periods of the activities, but there is such plan and we are ready to provide all support,” Dolunts said.
To note, during the Soviet era flights were conducted from the aforesaid airports to capital city Yerevan.
