Azerbaijan, Baku, Jan. 13 / Trend A. Akhundov /
The difficulties with air communication hamper Azerbaijani tourists from visiting southeast Asia, Latin America and the U.S. Improvements are required, head of the Azerbaijani Tourism Association Nahid Bahirov told Trend today.
"Today, there are potential tourists willing to visit these regions, but due to problems with air communication they postpone their trips until better times," he said. "It would be useful to establish air communication in these areas to develop the tourism. People go to Europe, Turkey, UAE, because there it is easy to reach them and it is time to innovations in this sphere."
Azerbaijani Culture and Tourism Ministry department head Aydin Ismiyev told Trend on Friday that the opening of flight on these routes is not profitable, because there is low flow of tourists.
