The Ryanair route network continues to grow, this time adding two new destinations in Armenia to its network
The airline will add four new routes – two for summer and two for winter. They are:
- Yerevan – Milan Bergamo Twice per week starting in January 2020
- Yerevan – Rome Ciampino Twice per week starting in January 2020
- Yerevan – Berlin Schönefeld Twice per week in the summer
- Gyumri – Memmingen Twice per week in the summer
Armenia will be the 40th country Ryanair has extended its reach to, with the airline hoping to reach over 130,000 passengers in the first year.
Ryanair’s David O’Brien said:
“We’re pleased to announce Ryanair’s low fares have arrived at Yerevan and Gyumri, our newest airports and 1st airports in Armenia. These four new routes will further promote Armenian tourism, and will deliver over 130,000 customers annually to/from two European countries to one of Europe’s fastest-growing tourism destinations. We look forward to developing new Armenian traffic growth, new routes, and jobs in the coming years.”
Let’s not beat about the bush – Ryanair does everything not on a whim, but with hard financials to make a route launch (or not). These routes are uncontested at the moment – bringing new traffic flows to the region.
How that will translate will be a matter of promotion, passenger curiosity and the ability to make these limited flow services work.
