Azerbaijan Airlines will resume direct flights between Baku and New Delhi as of August 9, in partnership with Zeal Global Group.

Azerbaijan is currently seeing an increase in the number of travellers from India. With daily flights between Baku and New Delhi, the number of arrivals from the country is expected to grow further.

“Right before the pandemic, India was among the top 10 countries we received travellers from. Since the opening of international borders between the countries, India is once again placed at the top of this list. Azerbaijan is ready to welcome Indian travellers to enjoy picturesque places surrounded breath-taking nature, rich gastronomy, great venues and services for MICE events as well as weddings” said Florian Sengstschmid, Chief Executive Officer of the Azerbaijan Tourism Board.

Direct flights between the capitals of Azerbaijan and India will be operated twice a week: flights from Baku on Tuesdays and Fridays, and flights from New Delhi on Wednesdays and Saturdays.

Together with India, citizens and permanent residents of 101 countries can travel to Azerbaijan by air. To enter the country, they need to submit an official document issued by the relevant country on complete vaccination or recovery from Covid-19. For Indian travellers, the e-visa system is also in place with a possibility to obtain it within three days or hours depending on preference.
