According to the domestic news agency Armenpress, FlyOne Armenia, a low-cost Armenian airline, had its access to Turkish airspace abruptly terminated without warning by the Turkish authorities.
Aram Ananyan, the chairman of FlyOne, stated that the aviation authorities of Turkey canceled the airline’s permit to fly to Europe through Turkish airspace, citing “reasons that are incomprehensible to us and without any apparent justification.” FlyOne Armenia, which is a subsidiary of Moldovan airline FlyOne, commenced operations in December 2021 and provides flights to 14 locations in eight European and Middle Eastern nations.
The chairman of FlyOne Armenia noted that the Flyone Armenia plane, en route from Paris to Yerevan, made an emergency landing in Chisinau, and added that the airline is taking action in connection with the incident.
This action comes amid a longstanding disagreement between the two nations over the Armenian genocide of 1915, reports Aviation24.be
Several hours later, news outlets reported that FlyOne Armenia’s flight from Paris to Yerevan had ultimately arrived in Yerevan, but with a stopover of several hours in Chisinau, the capital of Moldova.
