Baku, Azerbaijan, Oct.22
By Seba Agayeva - Trend:
"Turkish Airlines" can use the Baku airport as a transit point for flights from Istanbul to Islamabad.
Azerbaijani ambassador to Pakistan Dashgyn Shikarov told Trend Oct.21 that governments of Azerbaijan and Pakistan put forward this initiative.
The ambassador said that both Azerbaijan and Pakistan have reached an agreement on the implementation of this flight with the leadership of the Turkish airlines.
"It was suggested that the "Turkish Airlines" would start making the Istanbul-Baku-Islamabad flights," he said.
"Turkish Airlines aircrafts can land in the Heydar Aliyev International Airport for an hour, and passengers from Azerbaijan will be also able to take advantage of this flight," he said.
Shikarov said that technical details of this issue are currently being solved. He expressed hope that the issue will be resolved by the end of 2014 or in early 2015.
Presently, there is no direct flight between Baku and Islamabad. Passengers from the both countries usually use flights of the "Turkish Airlines".
