Former employees of Armavia again took to the streets demanding pay of back wages, Armenia Today reported on Feb. 21.

First they gathered near the Armavia office, however, since the office was closed, the former employees went to a government building. When no one from the government building appeared, they went to the President's residence, where they handed their written complaints to the chancellery.

Per diem payments and salaries have not been paid for two months payment to about 65 flight attendants, 45 pilots, and 45 technical staff employees. At the same time, the company owes 1-2 million drams each to the stewardess and technical employees, and 6-10 million drams to pilots ($1 = 412.5 drams).

Former employees of the airline reported that most of them found work abroad. However, they are determined to get their wages. Former employees recalled that the owner of the airline Mikhail Baghdasarov promised to pay their salaries after the sale of aircraft, and although two months ago he sold two aircraft, salaries have still not been paid.
