Armenian airline Armavia will on Monday, January 24, begin operating a new weekly service between Bratislava and the Armenian capital Yerevan. The flights will operate on Mondays.
The company will use Airbus A319s with a capacity of 134 seats. The current price of a one-way ticket ranges from €137 to €563, depending on seat category. “The carrier plans to operate the link all year round, and is talking about adding other flights on Fridays if these flights are successful,” Bratislava Airport (BTS) spokesperson Dana Madunická told the TASR newswire.
The new route was officially presented by Armavia representatives on Monday, January 17. “We believe that as of next Monday [January 24] our route will welcome the first businessmen and tourists interested in experiencing the beauties of Slovakia in person, and vice-versa, those who are attracted by the rich history of our [Armenian] nation,” said Armavia general director Norayr Belluyan.
The route to Yerevan will be one of the furthest offered by BTS, said BTS board chairman Maroš Jančula. With the Armenian carrier entering the Slovak market, the total number of airlines providing regular flights to and from Bratislava during the winter season has increased to six: Czech Airlines, Danube Wings, LOT Polish Airlines, Ryanair, Sun D´Or International and Armavia.
