ArmInfo. The largest low-cost airline in Europe Ryanair, has announced the launch of flights from Yerevan and Gyumri. This was announced on October 16 at a press conference with the participation of Ryanair Chief Commercial  Officer David O'Brien, Managing Director of "Armenia" International  Airports CJSC Marcelo Wende  and head of the RA Civil Aviation  Committee Tatevik Revazyan.

David O'Brien said that Armenia is becoming the 43rd country on their  list. He stated that the company is starting its activities in  Armenia in three new directions. In particular, direct flights to  Rome and Milan will start from Yerevan on January 14, and to Berlin  from the end of March. The first European destination from Gyumri  Shirak Airport will be Memmingen (Germany), which will be available  from the end of March 2020.

On average per year, the company plans to serve about 130 thousand  passengers in Armenia, who, choosing Ryanair, will save a total of  about 20 million euros. In addition, according to him, the start of  the company's activities in Armenia will provide an opportunity to  create new jobs.

In an interview with ArmInfo, Managing Director of "Armenia"  International Airports CJSC Marcelo Wende  noted that negotiations  with Ryanair have been ongoing for several years. He emphasized that  the company decided to start air transportation from Armenia due to  the great potential, in particular, in connection with the growth of  tourist flows to the country.

David O'Brien said that Ryanair currently has 68 locations.  "Recently, Ryanair has received base points in Marseille and  Toulouse, where many Armenians live," he said. O'Brien noted that  Ryanair includes 4 airline companies; in total the number of aircraft  reaches 500. Thus, covering more than 2 thousand directions. Over the  next 4 years, the company, according to him, plans to increase the  number of passengers from 150 million to 200 million.
