From March 31st 2017 onwards, Brussels Airlines will operate flights from Armenia to Brussels. The capital Yerevan will be connected once a week with Brussels Airport and in July and August this weekly service is complemented by a second flight, according to the official website of the Brussels Airlines.
So far, Armenia was not directly connected by air with the European Capital of Brussels in the heart of Belgium. People of Armenian origin who live in Belgium, the South of the Netherlands and the North of France needed to fly through connections via other airports to Yerevan. With the new direct flights, Brussels Airlines now responds to the important market demand of the Armenian diaspora. Also Belgian tour operators and travel agents will make use of the new service in order to offer guided tours and holidays in Armenia.
Flights are operated with modern Airbus A 320 aircraft and leave Brussels Airport on Saturday and Tuesday late afternoon. The return flight from Yerevan arrives in Brussels in the early morning of Wednesday and Sunday. The Saturday service will be operated all year long and starts on March 31. The Tuesday flight will be offered in summer months (July and August) only.
