just out of curiosity i was looking at random flights and found the following


Armenian International Airways
MV 345 Yerevan (EVN), Yerevan, Armenia 07:30
Beirut Int'l (BEY), Beirut, Lebanon 10:50
Non-stop
320 5h20min


Return flight
Armenian International Airways
MV 346 Beirut Int'l (BEY), Beirut, Lebanon 12:10
Yerevan (EVN), Yerevan, Armenia 16:00

The flight from Yerevan (EVN) makes a stop in Athens (ATH), that's why. It's not mentioned in the schedules, but it does.

However no worries, Armenian International Airways is going to be shutting down, so starting January 5, Armenia's other carrier, Armavia will be taking over the route and it will be non-stop both directions.

Armavia
U8 305 Yerevan (EVN), Yerevan, Armenia 22:50
Beirut Int'l (BEY), Beirut, Lebanon 22:55
Non-stop
320 2h05min

Armavia
U8 306 Beirut Int'l (BEY), Beirut, Lebanon 00:25
Yerevan (EVN), Yerevan, Armenia 04:20
Non-stop
320 1h55min

Flight operates on Wednesdays and returns on Thursdays.

@BA: Do you have more details on the upcoming closure of MV and what routes U8 is going to take over from them?

Thomas Jaeger,

It appears MV will be shutting down at the end of December as U8 will be taking over all their routes.

Check out U8's website for a list of routes that will be taken over:
