ARMENIAN AIRLINES OFFICIALS VISIT DOUGLAS AIRCRAFT

 LONG BEACH, Calif., June 25 /PRNewswire/ -- A delegation of executives and government officials from Armenian Airlines is visiting the United States this week to explore possible acquisition of aircraft for the carrier's fleet.
 Yuri Mnatsakanov, chairman of the airline and also chairman of the Department of Civil Aviation for the Republic of Armenia, leads the group. They have spent three days in discussions at the Douglas Aircraft Co. division of McDonnell Douglas here, hosted by Walt Orlowski, vice president-general manager of marketing and business development.
 Based in the Armenian capital of Yerevan, Armenian Airlines flies scheduled and charter passenger and cargo services on domestic and international routes, using a fleet of Russian-built transports.
 The officials here are considering expansion of the airline's services, analyzing equipment requirements and evaluating the aircraft choices available for meeting those needs.
 The airline representatives said they also are exploring potential partnerships or alliances with other international airlines.
 Accompanying Mnatsakanov are Miron Shismanian, deputy minister of economics for the Republic of Armenia; Gary Titizian, deputy minister of the department of aviation for international affairs; and Jean Agopian of the Armenian Air Transportation Business Group.
 At Douglas, discussions have ranged from market analysis and fleet planning techniques through various aircraft types and their availability, to financing alternatives. There also were presentations on aircraft maintenance, ground support equipment, and training for technicians and flight crews.
 The group will return to Yerevan to consider their findings and complete additional studies before any equipment decision is made.
