As a now defunct airline, Armavia still inspires many people as the former national carrier of Armenia. The airline operated for nearly twenty years and provided many international passenger routes between Yerevan and various destinations in Asia and Europe.

This website is dedicated to all aspects of Armavia. Based in Zvartnots International Airport for much of its operational history, Armavia unfortunately filed for bankruptcy proceedings in 2013 and is now no longer a going concern. However, the rich heritage of the airline has been left behind for us to enjoy and this website applauds the achievement of the crew, management and pilots of Armavia. We aim to provide an uplifting experience for any like-minded fans of Armavia. Who knows when we may see a similarly ambitious airline once more taking to the sky in the same manner as the illustrious Armavia?
