Armenia’s Armavia takes delivery of its first new Airbus A319

Armenia flag carrier Armavia took delivery of its first new A319 yesterday. The aircraft was handed over to Armavia’s President, Mikhail Bagdasarov, at a ceremony held at the Airbus factory in Hamburg, Germany. Operated under a lease agreement with ILFC, the new A319 will increase the airline’s Airbus fleet to five aircraft from the current four, two A319s and two A320s.

Armavia’s A319 features the all-new cabin that recently entered service on all members of the Airbus A320 family of aircraft. The new cabin increases passenger comfort in a brighter and more modern cabin environment. The aircraft is powered by CFM International’s CFM56 engines, and is fitted with 134 passengers in a two-class cabin layout.

The airline plans to operate this aircraft on its international routes, such as to Moscow, Paris, Amsterdam, Saint Petersburg, Zurich, Berlin, Athens, Kiev, Odessa, Simferopol and Dubai.
