Azerbaijan Airlines CJSC (AZAL) will increase the number of regular flights from Baku to Moscow.
Two flights will be carried out daily from the Heydar Aliyev International Airport to Moscow Vnukovo airport from March 2017.
The corresponding agreement was signed by AZAL Vice-President Eldar Hajiyev and Vnukovo airport Director General Vasily Alexandrov in Moscow on November 29.
Vugar Imamaliyev, advisor to the ambassador of Azerbaijan to Russia, stressed that cooperation between Azerbaijan and Russia in the field of air travel had a long history.
“Azerbaijan and Russia cooperate in many areas”, Imamaliyev said. “The development of tourism is one of the main areas to which the countries are paying attention”.
Flights to Moscow are made under the AZALJET budget brand by Airbus A319 aircraft.
Currently, AZAL makes regular flights to four Russian cities. Besides Vnukovo airport, AZALJET makes flights to Moscow Domodedovo Airport, St. Petersburg (Pulkovo airport), Kazan and Mineralnye Vody. (Trend/Business World Magazine)
