Yerevan-Avia (Yer-Avia) was a privately owned airline operating international cargo flights based from Zvartnots International Airport in Yerevan, Armenia. As of February 2010, the Yerevan-Avia website is down. Therefore, it is not clear whether the airline is still active.

History[edit]

Yerevan-Avia was established in 1992 under the initiative and direct participation of the Mayor of Yerevan, Mr. Hambartsum Galstyan. It became the first cargo airline in Armenia with privately owned aircraft. Starting practically from zero, the company managed to prepare highly qualified flight crews in a short period of time, as well as technical and engineering ground personnel trained entirely by recognized training institutions. Therefore, the majority of the necessary aircraft maintenance is being performed in house at their home base.

Destinations[edit]

Yerevan-Avia started off with flights to CIS countries, which, later on, were extended to: France, Germany, Bulgaria, Italy, the Netherlands, Belgium, China, India, Zaire, Congo, Kenya, Egypt, Australia… Its aircraft have already been in more than 35 countries.[citation needed]

As of August 2006 the Yerevan-Avia fleet includes:

The company has guaranteed cargo traffic, mainly from the United Arab Emirates to CIS countries: Russia (mainly Moscow), Moldavia, Georgia, Tajikistan, etc. They also sometimes fly to Europe (Germany, Netherlands) and to Africa.
