RB are the first Arab airline to fly there, when did the service start and what aircraft do they use? I also want to know what RB's official name is, their UK website has the name "Syrian Airlines" while their other one is called "Syrian Arab Airlines", does any one know?

Hi Airmale,

Syrian has been flying to EVN, Armenia for at least 5-6 years now. They started with a TU154 but currently operate 727 on the route.

MEA used to fly to EVN in the late 80s from BEY. They may restart in the future, it's in their long term expansion plans.

A lot of CIS carriers have scheduled services to Yerevan.
CSA is a new comer to EVN. British Mediteranean and Austrian have scheduled services for some time now.
Swissair also served until it went bankrupt. There were a number of other short-lived airlines like Jes Air (Bulgaria) and VG/Delsey (Belgium).

Air Anatolia of Turkey also opened up services this May.

Did they ever plan flying to Malaysia? would be great if they do, or are you mistaking RB for Egypt Air who were to add KUL.

HI,

RB started to fly to EVN some 4 years ago. They mainly cater for the ethnic armenian community in Syria. Whereas ALP (Aleppo) would have been better since travel potential to EVN is stronger than out of DAM. Many Armenian and other russian charters do operate charters between EVN and ALP but thanks to the very high charges at syrian airports (including very high royalties) many are refraining at present.

RB has no intention to fly to KUL. Even if they start flying there they will definitely not break even since they will for sure deploy the 747SP with low number of frequencies. Most Fareast travellers out of DAM use either EK or GF.

Regards
Amir

Hi Amir,

Doesn't RB fly to EVN from ALP? Maybe it originates from DAM with a stop in ALP??? I'm almost sure that it's EVN-ALP

Enshbeses Vatche,

Yes you are right! the flight is ALP-EVN and not as i mentioned DAM-EVN! i stand corrected.

I think this was the result for the new aviaton agreements between SY and Armenia following the Visit of President Petrosyan (Spelling?) to DAM in the mid 90's.

It makes more sense from ALP, weheras a single weekly freq. (Day 5) means another loss making route for RB.

best regards to Beirut
Amir

Hi Amir,

The ALP-EVN might not be as bad as you say since no Armenian carrier is serving ALP at the moment. I think the new company, Armavia will start on this route very soon.
As far as I know, the demand is quite high during the summer season since Armenian used to add an additional flight at this time of year.

BTW, the spelling is right but his name is Ter-Petrosyan. Armenian names can be tough sometimes, no worries  Smile

All the best.
