History of Baku Airport
As early as 1933, there was an airfield with a passenger terminal in Baku. Over the ensuing decades, further terminals were added and Baku Airport’s original buildings were replaced by newer facilities. Terminal 2, which is now reserved for domestic flights, was built in 1989. Ten years later, the Azerbaijani government built an international terminal. In 2004, the airport, which had previously been named after the nearby village of Bina, was renamed Baku Heydar Aliyev Airport in honour of the late former president.
In 2010, Baku Airport’s operator decided to replace all of the Soviet era buildings with newer more modern designs. According to plans by Istanbul architect Autoban a modern building complex was created in 2014, whose curved glass constructions are regarded as an architectural marvel. With an area of 65,000 square metres spread over four floors, the new international terminal is designed for and equipped with a capacity of 6 million passengers per year. Additionally, the airport has two freight terminals, one of which was renovated and expanded in 2005. The two freight terminals provide excellent infrastructure for cargo flights in the region and bear witness to Baku’s long history as a hub of important trade routes between East and West. In December 2015, a new control tower with a modern radar system was added. In the same year, Skytrax, the British air industry consultancy firm, awarded four of a possible five stars to Baku Airport.

Book a Private Jet to Baku and Discover the Capital of Azerbaijan
As the capital of Azerbaijan, the seaside city of Baku, located on the Caspian Sea, is an important economic and commercial centre in the Caucasus region. Since the middle of the 19th century, oil has been extracted in Azerbaijan and the county is the third most populous oil export country in the world. Many oil companies, dealing in both oil extraction and exports, have a presence in Baku. The city’s port and the Baku-Tiflis-Ceyhan pipeline, built in 2006, play an extremely important role in the country’s oil industry and larger economy.
Modern office complexes line the coast of Baku. This includes, among others, the Baku Business Centre, which covers 4,664 square metres of conference and business space. With the Baku White City commercial project, the number of modern office buildings is steadily growing.
Many historic buildings, some dating back to the 12th century, testify to the city’s long history of international trade. Old palaces, fortresses, caravanserai and mosques characterise the appearance of the old town. The palace of the Shirvan Shah from the 15th century is especially worth seeing. A flight to Baku is also worthwhile for concerts and exhibitions in the Heydar-Aliyev Cultural Centre, designed by the architect Zaha Hadid.
