Air Armenia CJSC (Armenian: Էյր Արմենիա) is a passenger and cargo airline with its head office in Yerevan, Armenia.[1] The airline was established in 2003 and started operations on 18 March 2003. It operates freight services to destinations in the CIS and Europe. Its base is Zvartnots International Airport, Yerevan.

In July 2013 General Department of Civil Aviation of Armenia granted Air Armenia designations to operate passenger flights.

History[edit]

Since all passenger rights were granted on an exclusive basis to Armavia in 2003, Air Armenia could only operate cargo aircraft. After the liquidation of Armavia in 2013, Air Armenia announced its plans to launch passenger services as well, and became the largest air carrier of Armenia.[2][3]
