I like to look at maps to see where in the world I can go. It seems Brussels Airlines does the same thing, with the announcement of a new route between Brussels and Yerevan in Armenia.

Additional flights will be operated by Brussels Airlines on a charter basis between December 2016 and March 2017.
This will be the first direct service between Brussels and the Armenia, with timings to allow connections across Europe and North America.
According to Brussels Airlines, the connection to Yerevan will allow access to a “fascinating country”… according to their PR:
Situated in the South Caucasus region, Armenia is geographically as well as culturally and historically a fascinating destination and has long warm summers and short cold winters. Ancient monasteries, churches and cathedrals remind us of the long religious history of the country.
Nature lovers and hikers love Armenia for its unspoiled rugged mountains surrounding the capital, its many forests and lakes. Although one of the oldest cities in the world, Yerevan certainly moved with the times and is worth a visit thanks to its vibrant cultural life, parks, fountains and museums.
Bookings for this new route open in Mid-October.
