New from Berlin to Yerevan with Armavia

New connection as of 14 April 2009 / Non-stop from Berlin to Armenia
As of 14 April 2009, the Armenian airline Armavia will be offering two non-stop flights a week from Berlin-Tegel to Yerevan. Armenia offers a wealth of cultural and historical highlights: the world's oldest Christian country is full of churches, temples and castle convents. Even the barren landscape in the highlands, which is characterised by giant snow-covered volcanoes, is impressive.

"We are delighted with the new connection to Berlin, which for us represents access to the German and Northern European market", said Julien Dufour, the airline's Commercial Director. "Germany is home to over 40,000 Armenians and thus the fourth-largest Armenian community in Europe. Armenia is also enjoying growing popularity as a tourist destination."

Armavia flies from Berlin to Yerevan every Tuesday and Friday. Flights from Berlin-Tegel depart at 12.15 p.m. and land in Yerevan at 7.15 p.m. The airline departs from Yerevan on the same day at 9.20 a.m., landing in Berlin-Tegel at 10.30 a.m. Armavia operates a modern Airbus A 319 on the route, which seats 136 passengers. Passengers from other German cities can use the feeder flights offered by Air Berlin to reach Berlin-Tegel for their flight to Armenia.

Armavia Air Company LLC was established in 1996 as a national aviation company of the Republic of Armenia. The airline operates flights from Yerevan to Amsterdam, Marseilles, Athens and Zurich in Europe.
