Heydar Aliyev International Airport is located 25 kilometers east of Baku, connected to the city by two modern highways. It is the main hub of the national airline CJSC Azerbaijan Airlines.
The airport meets international standards. Thanks to its very favorable geographical location, Baku airport has become the number one in the region for transit flights between East and West, North and South.
According to the rating of the independent British consulting agency Skytrax, Heydar Aliyev International Airport was awarded the “4 Star” rating in 2015.
The passenger terminal of Heydar Aliyev International Airport was first built in Azerbaijan in 1933.
The first two-storey terminal building was constructed and commissioned on the territory of the Baku airport in 1965.
The design and construction of a new terminal building of the Baku airport started on the initiative of great leader Heydar Aliyev in 1980.
However, the implementation of this project was made possible only after Azerbaijan restored its independence.
The opening of an airport terminal meeting international standards was conducted in a ceremony attended by nationwide leader Heydar Aliyev in 1999. Runways and taxiways were reconstructed, air traffic control systems upgraded, radio navigation and meteorological equipment updated and a whole series of other measures taken at the Baku airport in a matter of a few years.
The opening of a new terminal of the Heydar Aliyev International Airport was held on 23.04.2014.
