Etihad Airways Launches First Flight to Baku, Azerbaijan

Etihad Airways has introduced the first ever flight linking Abu Dhabi and Baku, this week.

The service will run three times weekly on Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays using a 136-seat Airbus A320, configured with 16 business class seats and 120 economy class seats.

Commenting on the new flight, Peter Baumgartner, Etihad Airways chief executive, said: “We are tremendously excited to be launching scheduled flights between Abu Dhabi and Baku, the only scheduled service linking the two capitals.

“There is strong demand from both markets for a direct, full-service operation on the route, and we have responded to this increasing customer requirement. The new flights will further boost traffic from the UAE and strengthen the bilateral relations between the two nations.

“The visa waiver programme introduced for UAE nationals by Azerbaijan in 2015 has greatly stimulated interest in the country, resulting in a surge of visitors since its implementation.”
