Azerbaijan, Baku. I Part. Heydar Aliyev Airport

Azerbaijan Airlines operated our Moscow-Baku-Moscow flight and we were quite pleased. Wide seats, a new aircraft, soft landing and very tasty meal on board. As a downside, I would have refered the absence of a USB port to charge the phone, although you can rarely see it at airplanes, flying to such close distances (3 hours). Locals say this is the best carrier, despite the fact that it is the most expensive.

Baku is called the city of winds and when the plane lands, it often shakes. But airplanes of Azerbaijani airlines cope with the strong wind and any weather condition very well. On the day of our arrival, there was really strong wind, but we landed very smoothly!

It is worth mentioning also food on board. First of all, menu of round trip is significantly different. Typically, it is a standard set, but here everything was different - salad, main course, dessert, snacks. When we were flying to Baku, we ate a vegetable salad, strawberry cake and chicken with vegetables, and on the way back, we were offered chicken cutlet with pink rice, Baku salad made of stewed vegetables, and a chocolate cake for dessert! Secondly, a good Azerbaijani wine is offered on board! As a result, we were well fed and happy.

A movie is shown on board, but only one for all, so you can see special screens over the seats.

Upon arrival at the airport you will easily find a taxi, for example, here is a London cab, or bus decorated with symbols of the First European Games.

Heydar Aliyev International Airport surprised me very much! I have been at different airports of the world recognized as the best and beautiful, but Baku airport caught my fancy the most! The airport has two terminals - an old and a new one, we arrived in a large new terminal, built in 2013 specifically for the First European Games.
Previously, the airport was named Bina International Airport (named after a suburb in Baku), but in 2004 it was renamed in honor of the third President of Azerbaijan - Heydar Aliyev. The airport is 25 kilometers away from the city. You will need 20-30 minutes to get to the capital, and 20-30 manat for a taxi from / to the airport.
On the outside, the airport, as many buildings in Baku, has no straight lines, and the construction itself is very smooth.

The Airport is even more beautiful inside than outside! On the second floor, after passport control you will find huge wooden "egg", in which coffee shops and shops are located, and more beautiful is that chairs resembling cages for large parrots! Personally, the airport evoked the most positive emotions in me. Duty Free is small, but it is not only in the departure hall, but also in the arrival hall.

And it is the old terminal of Baku airport and it is as beautiful and unusual as a new one. Azerbaijanis love beautiful buildings, definitely!

I do not want to return home at all, so I am looking for options to return to Baku again! The price of return ticket is around 22000-25000 rubles, which, I think, is very expensive! Our ticket during the First European Games cost 66,000 rubles, so 22,000 rubles seems to be very reasonable price.

As I understood, only 3 direct flights of the following airlines are carried out from Moscow to Baku: AZAL, S7 (joint flight with Azal) and Aeroflot.
