ACCESS TO ARMENIA
Air access to Armenia is through the country’s two international airports at Zvartnots, 15 KM outside
of Yerevan, and Shirak in Gyumri. The recently opened new terminal in Yerevan meets all European and
International standards. Various national and foreign carriers operate flights to Yerevan and Gyumri
and include Aeroflot, AlItalia, Air France,
Austrian Airlines and Czech Airlines. Yerevan has direct air connection with
Beirut, Dubai, Istanbul, Kiev, Rome, Moscow, Paris, Prague, St. Petersburg,
Tehran, Vienna, etc.
Overland road routes connect Armenia with each of its neighbors; however, those through Azerbaijan
and Turkey remain closed owing to the ongoing blockade of Armenia by these countries. Two routes
remain open through Georgia providing access to the Black Sea ports of Batumi and Poti, as well as
one route through Iran to the Persian Gulf. The road network is relatively well developed with over
98% of interstate roads paved. Rail links through Turkey and Azerbaijan are closed. Routes through
Georgia and Iran remain open.
