The largest airport in Azerbaijan – Heydar Aliyev International Airport (IATA: GYD) is located 25 km. from the center of Baku. As of today, it is the largest airport in the region both in terms of traffic, area and capacity of the airport and cargo complexes, as well as for take-off and landing operations. Over the past 2 years, Heydar Aliyev International Airport has led the list of the best airports in the CIS countries in terms of the level of services provided, and has also been awarded the maximum “5 Star rating” from the Skytrax World Airport Awards.
2. Statistical Information
According to statistical information, Heydar Aliyev International Airport served 4.73 million passengers in 2019, which is 7 percent more than in 2018. During the year, 37 passenger airlines were served, which operated flights to more than 60 different directions. In addition to national airlines, the top ten passengers in terms of passenger flow included: Turkish Airlines (Turkey, 492 thousand passengers), FlyDubai (UAE, 237 thousand), Aeroflot (Russia, 193 thousand), AirArabia (UAE, 169 thousand), UIA (Ukraine, 124 thousand), Qatar Airways (Qatar, 106 thousand), Lufthansa (Germany, 66 thousand) and SCAT (Kazakhstan, 62 thousand).
3. How to get from the airport to the city center
The growth in passenger traffic determines the development of transport companies that ensure the delivery of passengers to destinations – hotels, hostels, guest houses, etc. In this direction, one of the most popular services among visiting tourists was Airport Transfer Baku.
From Heydar Aliyev International Airport to the city center of Baku can be reached in several ways:
Highly comfortable buses with an interval of 30 minutes run from Heydar Aliyev International Airport to the city center and back from 06:00 to 00:00.
Despite the high level of buses and the service provided, it is used only by local residents who fly into the city from abroad, as well as tourists visiting the city in a small company with a little luggage. This is due to the fact that the bus goes non-stop to the metro station on May 28, and from there it is still necessary to get to the destination by taxi or other form of transport, which is very inconvenient for large groups of tourists, business clients or couples. In addition, the bus does not accept payment in cash or plastic cards, but ONLY through special cards that must be purchased when leaving the airport.
The “London Taxi” service operates at the Heydar Aliyev International Airport, and you can also order a taxi through the application (for example, UBER) or use the services of private individuals who are on duty at the airport exit. However, despite the large number of offers, the price and quality of taxi services in Baku still leave much to be desired. For example, due to the fact that 90% of taxis are not equipped with taximeters, the fare quite often reaches astronomical indicators, payment is almost always required in cash, and no one guarantees the quality of service, cleanliness and normal technical condition of the cars.
Today, several companies that have established themselves as high-quality and reliable suppliers of transport services for foreign guests provide transfer from the airport to Baku. Tourists from many countries around the world choose this particular way of travel, as they prefer punctuality, a high level of service, as well as excellent and comfortable vehicles.
