If you are planning for a new adventurous trip, the best flight to take is to Armenia. There are a number of flights to Yerevan, so in this blog we will provide a useful guide related to the airports/flights to Armenia.
Armenia is a country located at the crossroads of Asia and Europe. From the west Armenia is bordered by Turkey, Georgia from the north, Azerbaijan and Artsakh from the east and Iran from the south. Even though the borders of Turkey and Azerbaijan are closed, Armenia is easily accessible from Iran and Georgia. The border procedures are not heavy in Armenia making the process of entering the country easy and quick.
Armenia has two international airports – Zvartnots International Airport, in the capital Yerevan, and Shirak International Airport, in the city of Gyumri.
Armenian Airport Zvartnots International Airport acts as the main air gate in Armenia for flights to Yerevan. Operating since 1961, it’s the busiest airport of the country situated outside of the city. It takes approximately 15-20 minutes to get to the city center (10-11km from the airport to the city Yerevan).
After Armenia declared independence from the Soviet Union, the airport was renovated in a futuristic style. The building of the airport isn’t only modern and secure, but also architecturally stunning. The renovated Zvartnots was later named the best airport in the CIS, further proving the quality of the service and the flights.
Shirak International Airport is the second largest airport in Armenia. It’s located not too far away from the center of Gyumri. The equipment and the system used by the airport are newly developed putting it ahead of other airports located in mountainous areas.
