Was an add-on from GYD if I recall correctly. Armenia requires a visa but Georgia does not and I'm surprised there isn't a Tbilisi/TBS service (again, BD used to do this.) Wizzair to Kutaisi isn't quite the same.

BEG is underserved, perhaps due to authorities and facilities at the other end; loads and yields on Air Serbia and the limited Wizzair link from LTN are good.

Would also second the earlier suggestion of Sarajevo/SJJ, although it's very well served by Lufthansa group connections through MUC, VIE etc.

.

There is a route to Tbilisi with Georgian Airlines from LGW. Georgia is my number 1 next country in Europe to visit.

Sarajevo seems so obvious I forgot no one flew there. Bosnia is interesting, though a lot of people do what I did and cross to Mostar from Dubrovnik

Really? Hasnít heard that one. Who is to be the operator?

Itís not an unserved route though, three airlines to London plus TUI to MAN.

As one who has been involved in this sort of thing in the past,albeit not directly, I can assure all of you that airlines are looking for new city pairs all the time. The two principal drivers are population and economy. Clearly if there is not a large population, (Faroe Islands total population 50,000 - less than Wrexham - with an economy based on fishing and farming), there is .little money at any level in the economy. As ever, we should never rule out international politics when considering new routes. This may explain why Belgrade and Yerevan are not well served currently.
Conversely Guernsey, despite having a population of just 60,000 for example, is well served. Approximately 40% of its economy is based on banking and insurance, together with a liberal tax regime and thus attracts year-round high-spending visitors and not just tourist traffic.

FYI no visa required for Armenia (180 days), Georgia (180 days) Kazakhstan (30 days) and Uzbekistan (30 days).

Armenia is very cost effective and a pleasant place to visit, but still very Sovietski
