Fly with British Airways and enjoy award-winning service, excellent value for money and no hidden charges:
Fly direct from the United Kingdom to Baku and discover a capital that blends Middle Eastern, Russian and Western European influences. On the Caspian Sea, Baku contains UNESCO-listed monuments including the medieval Maiden’s Tower fortification alongside lavish recent developments such as the eye-popping Zaha Hadid-designed Heydar Aliyev Cultural Centre.
While the city’s new waterfront promenade and designer-filled shopping areas such as 28th of May Street reflect Baku’s recent oil wealth, you can also find Old City streets filled with traditional carpet shops and tea houses and open air restaurants grilling Caspian fish. Baku flights are also a starting point for exploring the rest of Azerbaijan. Within easy day trip reach of Baku are the natural gas flames of Yanar Dag’s burning mountain and the prehistoric rock carvings and bubbling mud volcanoes of Gobustan. Further afield but within a morning’s travel are broad, sandy beaches, the forested Caucasus Mountains and charming, ancient towns like leafy, little-explored Shaki.
Flights to Baku from London take 5 hours 25 minutes. Baku’s Heydar Aliyev Airport is located 12 miles from central Baku, and is connected with the city by an express bus service.
British Airways flies to Baku Heydar Aliyev Airport (GYD) from London Heathrow (LHR). With one flight daily, British Airways also offers you a generous 23kg baggage allowance and award-winning service.
Fly non-stop to Baku and explore a city staking its place as a world capital. To make your journey easier, you can check-in for flights online or via your mobile phone, where seats are available for reservation up to 24 hours before departure.
Baku Airport lies 12 miles east of the city centre and is connected to the city by an express bus service that takes 30 to 40 minutes. Within the city, Baku is served by a two-line metro system and many bus services, while the city centre is compact enough to be largely walkable.
A new terminal with more shops and restaurants is due to open at Baku airport at some point in 2013. In the meantime, the current terminal offers duty free shopping and international designer goods from brands such as Salvatore Ferragamo and Montblanc watches, and a few decent canteen-style places to eat and drink.
