“Azerbaijan Airlines” is increasing the frequency of flights performed from Baku to Tel Aviv, the Company told APA-Economics.
Thus, in addition to the flights to be operated on Sundays (starting from July 11), another weekly flight will be added to the schedule from July 22 which will be performed on Thursdays.
Tickets can be purchased on the official website of the Airline (www.azal.az), as well as in the Airline's accredited agencies. Passengers who are allowed to fly under the current epidemiological restrictions will be accepted on these flights.
According to the decision of the Operational Headquarters under the Cabinet of Ministers, Israeli citizens can travel to Azerbaijan, subject to the provision of:
- a certificate proving that a passenger has had a full course of COVID-19 vaccine (COVID-passport), or a certificate of recovery from COVID-19;
- a certificate of negative PCR test result for COVID-19 issued within 72 hours before departure.
When entering Azerbaijan by air, Israeli citizens under 18 years old can provide only a certificate of negative PCR test result; no certificates are required for children under one year of age.
Azerbaijani citizens planning to travel in this direction must check their right to enter the territory of Israel. The entry requirements for Israel during COVID-19 pandemic are presented on the Airline's website at https://www.azal.az/en/information/covid-israel.
