Etihad Airways’ new four times weekly service to Yerevan is planned to be operated by the airline’s 136-seat A320s, but they rolled out an A321 for the inaugural, which received the traditional water salute.
- Etihad Airways started services from its Abu Dhabi (AUH) hub, the world’s 102nd busiest airport, to the capital of Armenia – Yerevan (EVN). Commenced on 2 July, the 1,989-kilometre sector will be flown four times weekly by the airline’s 136-seat A320s. The MEB3 carrier will face no direct competition on the city pair, and is also the first of the MEB3 to add Yerevan to its respective network, although Emirates’ LCC flydubai does operate there from Dubai (thrice-weekly).
