Armenian International Airways (Armenian: Հայկական Միջազգային Ավիաուղիներ, Haykakan Mijazgayin Aviaughiner; AIA) was a privately owned airline operating international passenger flights based from Zvartnots International Airport in Yerevan, Armenia.

History[edit]

Armenian International Airways was jointly established on July 12, 2002, by Armenian businessmen Gagik Tsarukian, Hrair Hakobian, and Levon Baghdasarian. AIA initially intended to lease three Airbus aircraft by 2003 for flights to Paris, Amsterdam, and Frankfurt. On January 1, 2005, the company merged with Armavia.

Routes[edit]

AIA operated scheduled flights from Yerevan to Western Europe, notably many former Armenian Airlines routes.

Fleet[edit]

AIA operated one leased Airbus A320-200. This aircraft was destroyed in a fire at Brussels Airport on 5 May 2006, along with one of Armavia's own A320s.[1]
