Azerbaijan Airlines started capital to capital flights between Azerbaijan and Germany. The carrier flies from Baku to Berlin Tegel Airport since May 2nd. This summer, flights will be available twice a week – always on Wednesdays and Saturdays.
On both days, the aircraft depart from the Azerbaijani capital at 7:25am and arrive in Berlin-Tegel at 9:25am local time. The return flight takes off at 10:45am and lands in Baku at 6:40pm local time. The journey takes roughly five hours. Azerbaijan Airlines operates Airbus A319s seating 122 passengers on this route.
Jamil Manizade, Commercial Director of Azerbaijan Airlines: “We are de-lighted about the new connection between Azerbaijan and Germany, espe-cially in view of upcoming Baku 2015 - First European Games in June. Berlin is not only an important destination from Baku but is also a significant addi-tion to Azerbaijan Airlines' extensive European flight network.”
Dr. Karsten Mühlenfeld, Chief Executive Officer of Flughafen Berlin Bran-denburg GmbH: “We are very pleased to be able to welcome Azerbaijan Airlines to Berlin-Tegel Airport. With the new airline, we now offer the people of Berlin and Brandenburg a direct connection to yet another destination in the Middle East. We wish Azerbaijan Airlines every success in Berlin.“
