History

The Armavia company was created in 1996, but its commercial flights only started in 2001. In 2002, a strategical alliance with the second russian aircompany Siberia Airlines was installed. The russian company became the principal shareholder of Armavia. In October 2002, Armavia received its first Airbus A320-200 wich was followed by a second in August 2003. Those aircrafts were owned by Ansett Australia wich was declared bankrupt in 2002. In 2004, the main armenian aircompany Armenian Airlines was declared bankrupt and Armavia took the flights of the old company. But Armavia didn't start flight to Europe because another armenian company named Armenian International Airways (Հայկական միջազգային ավիաուղիներ) was operating those flights. But when this company was declared bankrupt, Armavia took the european flight too and became the largest airline in Armenia. In 2006, Armavia opened a new flight to Tel Aviv.
