As with the airline’s other destinations, the cost of one-way tickets will start at EUR 29 euros.

Tickets are already available on the official website of the airline, as well as at its ticket offices.

As reported earlier, Buta Airways, which is a structural unit of Azerbaijan Airlines CJSC (AZAL), is the first low-cost airline in Azerbaijan. It was founded in December 2016. It performed its first flight on September 1, 2017. The airline has a fleet of modern Embraer aircraft. The airline is based at the Heydar Aliyev International Airport in Baku.
