New flight routes, aviation companies to be opened in cooperation with AZAL – tourism minister


Baku. Javid Zeynalli – APA. “In this year’s holiday season, hotels have been occupied 92% in Ismayilli and Shamakhi, 95-100% in Goygol, 100% in Gabala, and 90% in Lerik, while those in Mingachevir and Khizi have not been occupied completely. The information I have is that this percentage is 30,” Azerbaijan’s Minister of Culture and Tourism Abulfas Garayev said at a press conference in Baku Sept. 27.  

 

The minister noted that the tourism industry will be developing faster after the Tourism Council beings to operate next year.

 

“The Council will include several state bodies. Trade festivals also play an important role in the development of tourism. We can hold two festivals next year and some 20 to 30% of the expenses may be retrieved,” he said.

 

The minister added that there are plans to open more offices in other countries.

 

“The current offices in the U.A.E, Russia, and Germany are operating successfully. Azerbaijan relies on the principle of ‘open sky.’ We are thinking of opening new flight routes and aviation companies in cooperation with AZAL,” Abulfas Garayev noted.

 

According to him, there are ongoing efforts to improve border checkpoints.

 

“A huge need has arisen for construction of three-star hotels. In this direction, we’re implementing joint projects with other bodies. Thermal tourism has fallen in place. We’re also working to ensure regular tourism in the winter. We’re holding discussions with the Customs Committee to do joint works in order to provide comfort for tourists,” Garayev said.
