The execution of flights from Azerbaijan to the USA is suspended.
As reported by 1news.az at CJSC Azerbaijan Airlines (AZAL), due to problems in the US aviation industry market, the national airline was unable to increase its fleet.
For this reason, it was decided to keep the most profitable directions in the route network of AZAL airline:
"Flights to these destinations will create wide opportunities for using Heydar Aliyev International Airport as a transit hub and increasing the flow of tourists to our country. Taking these points into account, we consider it expedient to suspend flights to New York from October 2019. ”
AZAL also reported that the Open Skies aviation agreement between Azerbaijan and the United States has been in force since 2016, and this agreement allows airlines of both countries to carry out flights in unlimited quantities:
"We hope that the US airlines will take advantage of this opportunity and open direct flights to Baku."
