Armenia stopped letting Russian planes in due to sanctions imposed on Russian airlines

In Armenia, two Russian aircraft were not allowed into the country because their licenses had ended.

According to the Baza Telegram channel, Armenia forced two Russian planes flying to Yerevan to turn around. As it turned out, while preparing to enter the airspace of Armenia, it turned out that the license of the aircraft of the Russian air carrier had expired, and therefore the aircraft had to land at the Mineralnye Vody airport.

“Two Aeroflot planes flying from Moscow to Yerevan were sent to Mineralnye Vody. The thing is that several Aeroflot Airbuses have expired their license to fly to Armenia. According to the database, we are talking about flights SU 7072 and SU 1868, which took off tonight from Sheremetyevo. Only during the approach to Armenia, the pilots of the aircraft found out that their license had expired on their sides. As a result, both PICs had to request a landing in Mineralnye Vody and land there instead of the capital of Armenia.”, - reports "Base".

Apparently, the flight license ended due to the imposed sanctions against Russian airlines, however, the fact that Armenia supported such restrictions is a matter of serious concern, especially given the allied relations between the two countries.

Subsequently, another plane landed at the Mineralnye Vody airport, which has a flight license, in connection with which the passengers were nevertheless taken to Yerevan, although with a number of troubles for the latter.

At the moment, there are no official explanations for this.
