ArmInfo. The longest reversible cable car in the world "Wings of Tatev" (5752 m) announces the launch of a special offer for schoolchildren and children in  orphanages, who are provided with free travel on the cable car. The  offer is valid from 25 August to 15 September inclusive. According to the press service of IDeA, children will get an  indelible impression of the magnificent mountain landscapes,  panoramas of the Vorotan gorge, above which the cabins of the air  highway leading to the Tatev monastery complex soar. On the eve of the celebration of the tenth anniversary of the "Wings  of Tatev" schoolchildren and children from orphanages will also be  able to visit one of the most famous spiritual, cultural and  educational centers in Armenia - the Tatev Monastery Complex (IX  century). "This will become not only an exciting journey and  wonderful leisure for schoolchildren, but also immersion in the  history, culture, religious and educational traditions of Armenia. To  increase domestic tourism, this year we are using various special  offers. So, in July we announced a special offer for visitors who  received 4 tickets for the price of 3. This in particular increased  the number of family trips to Tatev, "said Vahe Baghdasaryan,  director of Wings of Tatev. The sharp decline in tourist traffic due to the coronavirus pandemic  this year requires additional funding from the founders to cover  operating costs. However, Wings of Tatev continues to fly and offer  attractive packages for passengers. The Wings of Tatev cable car, entered in the Guinness Book of  Records, has been operating since 2010. It is one of the modern  attractions in Armenia, contributing to the development of local  infrastructure and stimulating both domestic and international  tourism. Over the past 10 years, about 1 million visitors have used  its services. "Wings of Tatev" were built within the framework of the "Revival of  Tatev" program, which is also aimed at the restoration of the Tatev  monastery complex and the development of neighboring communities. The  aerial tram is an example of venture philanthropy in which the donor  does not expect a return on the money invested. The project generates  income from its own activities, which covers all operating costs. In  addition, the proceeds from the use of the tourism infrastructure are  used for the reconstruction of the Tatev Monastery, as well as  various community development initiatives. The Tatev Revival program is implemented by the Tourism and Urbanism  Charitable Foundation (TUF), which since July 2020 has been  implementing all the tourism programs of the Initiatives for  Development of Armenia (IDeA) Foundation. The TUF program portfolio  also includes development projects for Dilijan, Gyumri, Artsakh and  Yerevan. The Foundation develops innovative programs in the fields of  tourism and urban development, contributing to sustainable regional  development and positioning Armenia in the world as a competitive  tourism destination.
