Armenian Airlines Resumed Flights to Europe

YEREVAN (Noyan Tapan)–Armenian Airlines resumed flights to Europe. A Yerevan-Paris flight was made on Thursday by a TU-154M plane leased by a Russian airlines.

The Armenian Airlines stopped flights to Europe on January 21 because the A-310 airplane’s engine was not working. The other planes leased by Armenian Airlines cannot operate flights to Europe since they have no TCAC system. The leased TU-154M plane is equipped with the required system.

A replacement of the engine of the A-310 is highly unlikely due to the fact that that particular plane was discontinued and there are no new engines that can be installed. To repair the actual engine is also very expensive–therefore it is highly unlikely that the engine will be repaired.
