Azer News - - Country Guide - By Sara Is­rafil­bay­ova

Ro­ma­nian air­line com­pany TAROM will launch Bucharest-Baku di­rect flights, start­ing from April 3, 2019.

The cost of round-trip tick­ets starts from 341 eu­ros. The price of tick­ets in­cludes hand lug­gage (10 kilo­grams), lug­gage (23 kilo­grams) and meals on board.

Ear­lier it was re­ported that the flights are planned to be car­ried out on A318 air­craft.

TAROMA is the flag car­rier and old­est cur­rently op­er­at­ing air­line of Ro­ma­nia, based in Otopeni near Bucharest.

Its head­quar­ters and its main hub are at Henri Coandă In­ter­na­tional Air­port. It is cur­rently the se­cond largest air­line op­er­at­ing in Ro­ma­nia based on in­ter­na­tional des­ti­na­tions, in­ter­na­tional flights and the third largest mea­sured by fleet size and pas­sen­gers car­ried.

Cur­rently, the air­line’s fleet con­sists of 25 air­craft.

En­sur­ing sus­tain­able eco­nomic de­vel­op­ment by raising non-oil sec­tor is an im­por­tant task fac­ing the coun­try at the present stage. Nu­mer­ous stud­ies show that tourism is one of the lead­ing po­si­tions among the spheres of non-oil sec­tor in terms of its prospects and the coun­try does its best to cre­ate prof­itable con­di­tions for de­vel­op­ment of this sphere and at­tract more tourists to the coun­try.

Dur­ing Jan­uary-Septem­ber of the cur­rent year, Hey­dar Aliyev In­ter­na­tional Air­port served 3.49 mil­lion pas­sen­gers, which is 10 per­cent more than the in­di­ca­tor of last year.

Since the be­gin­ning of the year, 3 mil­lion pas­sen­gers have been served on in­ter­na­tional flights (86 per­cent of the to­tal pas­sen­ger traf­fic). AZAL ac­counted for 34 per­cent, and Buta Air­ways - 11.5 per­cent of the to­tal num­ber of in­ter­na­tional pas­sen­gers.

Cur­rently, Baku air­port serves over 30 air­lines in more than 40 des­ti­na­tions. The ten most pop­u­lar in­ter­na­tional des­ti­na­tions in Septem­ber were headed by Istanbul, Moscow, Dubai, Kiev, Shar­jah, Tehran, Bagh­dad, Tbil­isi, An­talya and Tel Aviv.
