European low-cost airlines are ready to enter the Armenian market, head of the country's Tourism Committee Hripsime Grigoryan told reporters on Wednesday, December 26.
According to her, a set of negotiations have already been held with a number of European budget carriers.
She said the airlines will most probably fly to Armenia’s second-largest town, Gyumri, which is home to Shirak airport.
Grigoryan said government support is a key condition for a low-cost airline to enter the Armenian market, citing assistance in promoting the companies' marketing policies as an example.
Only one budget airline - Russia's Pobeda - is offering relatively cheap flights to from Moscow to Gyumri.
