Etihad Airways has launched flights between Abu Dhabi and Yerevans Zvartnots International Airport.

The airline will operate the new route between Abu Dhabi and the capital of the Republic of Armenia four-times-per-week with a two-class Airbus A320 aircraft, configured to carry 136 passengers, with 16 seats in Business Class and 120 seats in Economy Class, offering a total of 1,088 seats per week.

James Mueller, Etihad Airways Senior Vice President, Global Sales, said the new flights catered for the significant and growing demand for travel between the UAE and Armenia, as well as cities with large Armenian populations around the world, particularly in the US home to over 1.5 million people from the Armenian diaspora.

Yerevan is a welcome addition to Etihad Airways growing network of destinations and reinforces our firm commitment to emerging markets, James said. But more importantly, Etihad Airways new flights also provide business and leisure travellers better access to and from Armenia, and convenient connections beyond our Abu Dhabi hub to the Gulf region and to key destinations in North America and across our global network.

Etihad Airways currently flies daily to Los Angeles, Chicago, and Washington, DC, and twice daily to New York. Direct flights from Abu Dhabi to Dallas Fort Worth will start from 3 December.

Sergey Avetisyan, Deputy Minister of Economy for the Republic of Armenia, said, In the framework of the Open Skies policy adopted by the Government of the Republic of Armenia, we welcome Etihad Airways to Armenia and are confident its new service to Yerevan will contribute to inbound tourism and stimulate economic and commercial ties between the UAE and Armenia.

Situated along the Hrazdan River, Yerevan is the cultural, economic and political heart of the country, with a population of more than a million. Its also the largest city of Armenia and one of the worlds oldest continuously inhabited cities - known as the City of the Sun and Light and famous for its vibrant nightlife, buzzing arts scene, cafe culture and Mediterranean mind-set.
