"Heydar Aliyev International Airport experienced unprecedented passenger numbers and volumes of baggage during and after the Games. Not only did the airport face unique challenges in transporting large numbers of athletes over a short period, together with their baggage, it also had to ensure that business as usual continued undisturbed. It was the dedication, enthusiasm, spirit and hard work of every stakeholder involved in the programme that enabled Baku to deliver such a truly remarkable and unforgettable Games. Much time and effort went into the planning of the event and looking back it can only be described as a job well done. Feedback speaks of an efficient, well planned, well-coordinated and well-resourced operation. The Games experience at Baku was a positive one and there is no doubt that the airport delivered a successful Games and met its main objectives," BEGOC letter said.

It should be noted that the latest scientific and technical achievements used in international aviation are applied in the new terminal with a total area of 65,000 square meters in order to ensure flights safety.

Heydar Aliyev International Airport ensured a high level of safety, comfort and quality service. There are all conditions for the comfort of passengers - many cafes and restaurants, business lounges, interactive booths and playground are built, more than 2,000 comfortable seats, 40 check-in counters, 30 escalators, 21 elevators and airbridges outside the building are installed.
