Starting from 8 June, the Azerbaijani state-run AZAL airline will launch direct flights from Lankaran (in the south of Azerbaijan) to Moscow – the airline reported on its official website.
Airbus A320 aircraft will fly this route once a week on Fridays.
Flights from Moscow to Lenkoran will depart from Vnukovo International Airport (VKO) at 10:00 am local time and will arrive at the Lenkoran International Airport (LKK) at 2:10 pm, local time. Return flights from Lankaran will depart at 3:40 pm local time, with arrival in Moscow at 5:50 pm, local time.
In summer, AZAL airline is also expected to launch flights to Moscow from other regions of Azerbaijan – from Ganja (starting from 13 April) and Qabala (from 4 June) as part of a partnership with Russian travel companies. AZAL airline previously had Moscow flights from these regions. Flights to Lankaran were few and operated by a private Russian carrier. The ticket prices for the Lankoran-Moscow flights will be lower than that for Baku-Moscow flights, since the airport fees there are much lower.
In addition, the first national low-cost airline, Buta Airways, will have direct flights from Ganja to Moscow.
