Baku, Azerbaijan, April 29

By Matanat Nasibova - Trend:

The number of bus trips from Baku to Turkey operated by Metro Turizm company has significantly decreased, a source in the company told Trend.

According to the source, this figure has decreased by 20-30 percent. "The decline in demand for this type of transportation in Azerbaijan has been observed last year, and the situation has worsened since the beginning of this year," the source added. "Given this trend, the company has revised its pricing policy to reduce the ticket prices. For example, the cost of the ticket from Baku to Antalya is 100 manats now, while last year this figure was 130-140 manats," the source said

It is suggested that the customer base reduced because the passengers prefer traveling by air.
