Beginning from the 28th of October, 2018, the air-company “Armenia” is shifting to the new- winter timetable, offering more affordable and cheaper prices to its passengers. All of this and not only was presented to us by the deputy director of “Armenia” air-company Gevorg Khachatryan in our talk.
- Mr. Khachatryan, from the 28th of October “Armenia” air-company is shifting to the new winter timetable. Does it suppose a change in the price policy too?
- During it’s three-years work, air-company “Armenia” has always been trying to design a predictable price policy for its passengers and it’s been three years since we have been working by fixed price policy. Our passengers who are using our services regularly, are aware that in all times we are trying to give an opportunity to everyone to travel cheaper by our regular directions in terms of different actions.
-Which are the new tariffs that “Armenia” offers to its passengers?
From the 28th of October the new-winter season of the realization of air-flights is being launched and we have prepared several surprises for our passengers, especially for the Russian directions: from Voronezh and Mineralnye Vody to Yerevan the prices have been fixed beginning from 59 € equivalent to AMD and on the opposite direction flight the state taxes and supplements will be added to the set 59 €. In case of the European directions the price policy differs a little, but it’s still competitive. For instance, for Yerevan-Lyon-Yerevan flight, that has been launched since the April of this year and has had high demand from the passengers, we have set prices for the winter season, accordingly to travel from Yerevan to Lyon will cost from 169 € equivalent to AMD and on the opposite direction- from 119 € equivalent to AMD.
In case of our regular flight Tel-Aviv-Yerevan-Tel Aviv that has been exploited for more than 1.5 year, we will give all the passengers, traveling to Tel Aviv, mainly for the pilgrimage, to travel in cheaper price. In this case we have set the price of 120€ equivalent to AMD for one direction. We hope that these prices, set by the air-company will give an chance to those who haven’t managed to go away on their summer vacations, to organize a vacation in the winter season on a cheaper cost.
- Do you plan to have new directions during the winter season?
What about the new directions, of course we are planning to have them, but those routes are going to launch from the next year. But we may offer to our passengers an interesting novelty. As I mentioned, the air-company is realizing regular flights to Voronezh and Mineralnye Vody. By the way there’s been a change in the timetable for this directions: the flights to Voronezh on Tuesdays and Fridays were moved to Fridays and Sundays: the aim is to give our compatriots and Russian tourists an opportunity to spend their winter holidays in Armenia and also to connect the flights of Voronezh and Tel Aviv, making the airport “Zvartots” in Yerevan a transit zone with an opportunity for the Russian citizens to fly to Tel Aviv by the air-company “Armenia”. Every Sunday Voronezh-Yerevan-Tel Aviv flights will be carried out and every Friday will be the flights to the opposite direction.
Bot the Armenian and Russian travel companies already have interest in the implementation of this direction, because Israel is the religious center of the world and the tourists’ flow into this country is huge. The duration of this transit flight is 5-7 hours: in one case the passengers will wait for 1.5 hour, in another case-3 hours. Taking into account that the prices in the Russian market are considerably high, besides the Armenian travel agencies offer 5-days travel packages to Tel Aviv on a much lower price, we are sure that this offer is going to be the unprecedented alternative for both the Armenian and the Russian passengers.
Let me remind that the tickets may be purchased through the official website of the “Armenia” air-company- www.armeniafly.com. I wish our passengers safe flight.
It’s impossible to imagine the airplane flights without flight maintenance managers. A pilot operates the plane, a flight dispatcher gives the direction, and a flight maintenance manager gets the flight permit. Karine Sargsyan, who is a flight maintenance manager in Air-company “Armenia”, revealed the 40 years’ work, told about getting into aviation and about her family in her talk to “Armenpress”
By the way, the peculiarity of the flight of “Aircompany Armenia” is an affordable ticket – about 320 USD for round trip, including 30kg of luggage and high-quality service in the airplane – hot meals, wine, beer both in business and economy classes
The passenger of Aircompany "Armenia" Voronezh-Yerevan flight is the part of historic indicator of Voronezh International Airport. Zaruhi Hakobyan couldn't have imagined that the day of her return to Armenia would become remarkable with various surprises.
“Armenia” aircompany implemented Yerevan-Thessaloniki-Yerevan regular season flights on June 22.
