carrier Air France is going to increase the number of its
Yerevan-Paris flights in the summer season.
The company is planning to serve daily flights between the Armenian

communication but also to ensure transit routes in different
directions (including Europe, the United States etc.) through the
global flight network Air France-KLM, Simon Scholte, the company’s
commercial director for Russia and the CIS region, told a news
conference in Yerevan.
“Last year, the Yerevan-Paris flights sattracted about 45,000
passengers, of whom 9,000 had bought tickets from Yerevan. As for the
passengers’ general number, it is definitely increasing. There was a
30%-40% growth in the recent period, and we expect the same this
year,” he said.
The company has also launched an exhibition entitled Stars between
Heaven and Earth: Cursory Glances; its opening was held at the
Zvartnots International Airport on Friday evening.
The jubilee event, dedicated to the air company’s history and its
world-renowned passengers, features only a part of Air France’s
archive. The photos included in the collection date from 1930-1970;
they portray different episodes of life telling about the company’s
activities and the entire history of civil aviation.
