About Armavia

Armavia was Armenia's flag carrier airline between 1996 and 2013. It was based at Zvartnots International Airport in Zvartnots, Armenia. Armavia was founded in 1997 as a joint venture between Armenian organisations and Russia's Sibir Airlines, eventually becoming Armenia's national airline.

The airline primarily focused on charter flights, later expanding to scheduled services from Zvartnots International Airport - some of its destinations were within Europe, Asia and the Middle East.

In the late 2000s, Armavia faced increasing competition from low-cost carriers and rising fuel costs. Unfortunately, a fatal plane crash in 2006 resulted in the image of Armavia being tarnished and a decrease in customer confidence. In 2013, Armavia experienced financial difficulties and filed for bankruptcy, ceasing all operations.
