Etihad to Operate Flights to Baku, Azerbaijan Next Year
Etihad Airways has announced plans to operate flights between Abu Dhabi and Baku, the capital city of the Republic of Azerbaijan.
From March 2018, the service will run three times a week using an Airbus A320, with 16 seats in business class and 120 in economy.
Peter Baumgartner, Etihad Airways chief executive, said: “The creation of the first ever air corridor linking the two capital cities demonstrates the importance of strengthening business, tourism and cultural ties between the UAE and Azerbaijan.
“The newest destination on Etihad Airways’ global network also reflects our commitment to linking Abu Dhabi with emerging markets that seek direct flights and onward connections to other parts of the world.
“Based on the growth witnessed in recent months from the UAE and neighbouring Gulf countries to Azerbaijan, we are confident that the new route will boost traffic from the UAE, and in turn, we look forward to welcoming Azerbaijanis on our flights to Abu Dhabi and beyond.”
