Route To Yerevan


Routes of flights between Aleppo and Yerevan

Due to Turkey’s restrictions on flights between Aleppo and Yerevan, the air routes developed as follows:

Red line, represents the oldest route, which took 4 hours to reach Yerevan. It was during the cold war, and as to me, American bases was the forbidden areas to flight over.

Yellow line, took 2,5 hours, it was a later development during eighties.

Green line, is the shortest way, which is now used. It is 780km directly line drawn, declared 850, due to airplane route-curves.

I have flewn all the routes.

N.B.: This article I have posted upon Rami’s question.

Armenians in Aleppo

Armenians in Aleppo exist since 14-th century. They were merchants, goldsmiths, leather, silk and carpet manufacturers. They traded productively with Mediterranean cities, Amsterdam, and Marseille.

Armenians built their own schools, churches, sportive and cultural centers.

They fought side by side with Syrian rebels against French colonialism, and imprisoned with them (registered in island Arwad near Tartous) for example, Sarkis Dkhrouni.
