How to Get From Yerevan Airport to the City Center (Zvartnots)

The Yerevan Airport, or Zvartnots International Airport, is a mid-size, comfortable airport that is located about twenty-five minutes away from the Armenian capital city.

The newly-built airport was constructed to replace the iconic Zvartnots International Airport that previously stood and was a masterpiece of Soviet architecture with its unique design and obscure control towers.

Yerevan Airport is well-connected and new flight routes are careening their way to Yerevan in droves.

Nearly ten new routes have opened in the last couple of months and low-cost carriers such as Ryanair and Wizzair have also moved into Armenian territory.

One of the best options, and certainly the most affordable one, is taking the Airport Express bus that goes to and from Yerevan city center to the Zvartnots Airport daily.

The Yerevan Airport Express buses depart every 30 minutes from 7 am until 10 pm, and every hour from 10 pm to 7 am daily.

After arriving at Zvartnots International Airport, you must exit the arrivals area on the ground floor.

You will immediately see a sign that says ‘Express Bus’ and it will guide you in between where the taxi stand is and the regular parking lot.

If you want something set and easy upon arrival, you will see a stand for taxis that is called Aerotaxi.

This taxi service will run travelers at about 5000 AMD (about $11).  This will allow you to avoid private taxi drivers and to have a fixed price and reliable service.

To be honest, we don’t use this option.  We download a Yerevan taxi app, such as GG Taxi or Yandex Taxi, and order one from there.

If there is no traffic, the price should be anywhere from 2000-2500 AMD (about $5-7).  I have taken several for 1500 AMD.  It just depends on the demand and traffic.

    Hi! Good info. Your link doesn’t take me to get a Yerevan pass. It just shows a list of excursions.

    If I will be arriving around 4 am, where should I go? My check-in time is 1 pm. Too early to check in and too late to book a night.

    Should I wait it out at the airport?

  2. Nina says:

    Hi Aram, thanks for great info! We also arrive to Yerevan at 2am and our check in is at 2pm. Any recommendations? The Airbnb owner just want to charge us for extra night. Is that the norm?
