Artsakh Air, also referred to as Artsakhavia, is a new airline scheduled to operate from the newly rebuilt airport in Stepanakert in 2012.[1][2][3][4][5] It has a head office on the grounds of Stepanakert Airport.[1][2] The company is owned by the government of the de facto state of the Nagorno-Karabakh Republic, a de facto independent republic which territory is de jure recognized as a part of Azerbaijan, (known locally as the Artsakh Republic) and will be the sole operator of flights from Nagorno-Karabakh to Armenia.[6] These will be the first commercial flights from Stepanakert to Yerevan in twenty years.[7] Artsakh Air’s fleet will consist of 3 Canadian-made Bombardier CRJ200 passenger jets costing at least $15 million each and designed for short and mid-range flights.[8] Tickets are expected to cost roughly $40-$50 USD each way.
