It is planned to open a direct air service between Azerbaijan and Spain in 2015, Azerbaijan's Deputy Minister of Culture and Tourism Nazim Samadov said, Spanish Agencia EFE news agency reported.
He made the remarks during the EIBTM international tourism exhibition in Barcelona, Spain.
Samadov said currently, the negotiations on opening a direct air service between Madrid and Baku are at the final stage.
The deputy minister said that the route is a big leap forward in facilitating the flow of tourists and spurring business between the two countries.
