Wizz Air, Europe’s fastest growing and most sustainable airline*, this week inaugurated its first flight from Václav Havel Airport to Zvartnos International Airport in Yerevan, Armenia.
Served excusively by twice-weekly Wizz Air flights by the state-of-the-art Airbus A321neo aircraft, the new year-round route further strengthens the airline’s presence in the Czech capital. Tickets for the new route are available on wizzair.com and via the WIZZ app, starting from 45 euro.
Starting today, travellers departing from Prague will be able to fly to Armenia’s capital city, Yerevan, situated along the Hrazdan River. The fast-paced and lively Armenian capital, built as far back as 782 BC, attracts tourists from all over the world every year with its fascinating mix of active city life and ancient history. Yerevan offers an abundance of attractions, such as Cascade Complex, the Matenadaran Armenian Manuscript Repository, and the Geghard Monastery, included in the UNESCO World Heritage List - the spear that pierced Jesus on the cross is believed to be kept there. Another popular activity among tourists is a visit to the famous “Yerevan Brandy Company” production site to taste the most characteristic drink of the region - cognac. Armenia is a country with a rich cultural history, stunning natural landscapes, and a vibrant contemporary culture.
