Migration from Armenia has reached huge volumes: around 39,897 people migrated from the country by air this year, Armenia Today reported citing the "Zhoghovurd" newspaper.
The newspaper notes that, Armenia's General Department of Civil Aviation published statistical data for passenger traffic by air for the first six months of 2013. Around 363,099 people left and about 330,484 people arrived through "Zvartnots" airport. About 19,693 arrived and 12,339 left through "Shirak" airport.
"This is only by air; many migrate from Armenia by bus," "Zhoghovurd" said.
According to newspaper sources, the country's authorities, at all costs are trying to postpone the publication of this sad data. It is no accident that the National Statistics service didn't publish the next semi-annual report in which volumes of migration would be mentioned, the newspaper concludes.
