Armenian International Midnight Airports

Armenia -- Departure gates at

Armenia — Departure gates at “Zvartnots” Armenian International Airports, Yerevan, 21Mar2018m

I travel pretty often, which usually means getting into the “Zvartnots” international aitport in the middle of the night or coming back to darkness and a sleeping city. So much so that I have come to regard our airport as the ‘midnight’ airport.

While some Russian and Ukrainian flights do happen in broad daylight, European flights almost exclusively come at night. This almost makes one feel guilty for leaving the country on the European direction, as it is usually criminal affairs that are committed at those late hours.

Once someone tried to explain these late night flights to me as a cost saving issue. Flights to and from Yerevan are expensive to begin with, so I wonder how much more expensive they would become if we had some daylight flights for a change.
