AZAL starts using Armenian airspace for Baku-Nakhchivan flights

11:40 - 6 October 2021

October 6, Fineko/ Azerbaijan Airlines has started using the airspace over the territory of Armenia since 6 October when operating domestic flight Baku-Nakhchivan-Baku.

ABC.AZ was informed at AZAL that this step demonstrates Azerbaijan's resolute readiness to unblock transport communications in the region, which meets the interests of all border countries.

"Changing the route of flight Baku-Nakhchivan-Baku will also reduce the flight time in this direction, as well as reduce fuel consumption during the flight. Thus, from now on, AZAL can use all existing air corridors, including those passing through the territories of Armenia and Iran, when performing this flight," according to AZAL.
