By Azad Hasanli – Trend:

Azerbaijan Airlines CJSC (AZAL) plans to establish air service with the Russian Volgograd and Astrakhan cities, as well as with the cities of Russia’s Far East, said AZAL Vice President Eldar Hajiyev.

He made the remarks addressing a press conference in Moscow Nov. 29.

Hajiyev said these plans are reflected in the company’s program that covers the period of up to 2021.

As of now, AZAL is not planning to open new flights in 2017, according to Hajiyev.

On the other hand, the situation may change – due to the sharp increase in the number of tourists coming to Azerbaijan from the Gulf countries, Azerbaijan Airlines almost doubled the number of flights from this region to meet the demand, according to AZAL vice president.
