Twin-engine plane landing in Syunik airport marks ‘historic’ moment

Twin-engine plane landing in Syunik airport marks ‘historic’ moment

YEREVAN, APRIL 26, ARMENPRESS. The L410 twin-engine aircraft has landed in the Kapan airport in Syunik province after taking off from Yerevan for a flight to test the airport approach systems.

Aviation authorities hailed it as a ‘historic’ moment because the Syunik airport was closed since the 1990s, with the exception of one day in 2017 when a private jet landed there.

The 19-seat L-410 UVP E20 aircraft took off from Zvartnots airport at 10:10 and landed in the Syunik airport at 10:58.

The Syunik airport has been renovated in accordance with international standards and is certified by the Civil Aviation Committee since 2020, the Civil Aviation Committee said in a statement.
