The relevant cooperation agreement was reached between President of CJSC Azerbaijan Airlines, Jahangir Askerov and Francisco Pérez-Lozao, Senior Vice President of Strategic Growth Businesses at Amadeus.
Heydar Aliyev International Airport has two passenger terminals, designed to serve 9 million passengers annually.
