Azerbaijan Airlines Orders Boeing 767-300 Passenger and Freighter Models

FARNBOROUGH, United Kingdom, July 22 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Boeing (NYSE: BA) and Azerbaijan Airlines have signed an agreement to substitute two Next-Generation 737 airplanes for one 767-300ER (extended range) and two 767 Freighters, a new model type for the Baku, Azerbaijan-based airline. The substitution has been updated on Boeing's Orders and Deliveries website.
"With our centralized geographic location, Azerbaijan is becoming a busy hub in the region between east and west and north and south," said Jahangir Askerov, president of Azerbaijan Airlines. "We are capitalizing on this development by expanding our long-haul passenger fleet and growing our cargo business with the proven efficiencies of the 767 Freighter."
Including today's announcement, Azerbaijan Airlines has a total of eight Boeing airplanes on order: two 767-300ERs, two 767 Freighters, two Next-Generation 737s and two 787-8s.
"With the economic recovery gaining momentum at various speeds around the world, our customers are making changes to their fleets to accommodate the upturn," said Marlin Dailey, vice president of Sales, Boeing Commercial Airplanes. "We have worked with Azerbaijan Airlines to make changes to its order book that meet its needs."
The Boeing 767 family is a complete family of clean, quiet, fuel-efficient airplanes that provide maximum market versatility in the 200- to 300-seat market. The Boeing 767 family includes three passenger models -- the 767-200ER, 767-300ER and 767-400ER -- and a medium-widebody freighter, which is based on the 767-300ER fuselage.

Azerbaijan Airlines has two Next-Generation 737s, two 787-8s and a 767-300ER already awaiting delivery

Baku-based Azerbaijan Airlines is ordering another 767-300ER and two 767 freighters.

Jahangir Askerov, president of Azerbaijan Airlines, said: "With our centralized geographic location, Azerbaijan is becoming a busy hub in the region between east and west and north and south. We are capitalizing on this development by expanding our long-haul passenger fleet and growing our cargo business with the proven efficiencies of the 767 freighter."

Marlin Dailey, vice president of sales, Boeing Commercial Airplanes, added: "With the economic recovery gaining momentum at various speeds around the world, our customers are making changes to their fleets to accommodate the upturn."

Foreign investment in Azerbaijan has risen 34.4 percent for the first six months of 2010 compared to the same period a year ago according to the state statistics committee.

The list of top investors remain unchanged with the UK at 46.2 percent of the total followed by the US with 20.6 percent, Japan 10.8 percent, Norway 6.7 percent and Turkey 5.3 percent.

Other major investors include the World Bank, the Asian Development Bank and the Islamic Development Bank. Total investment for the period was $997 million.

Heydar Aliyev International Airport New Terminal Building:









* Designed by Arup, a new terminal building will promote Baku and Azerbaijan to the wider world.
* Projected demand of 3m passengers per year in a 53,000m2 terminal.

Heydar Aliyev International Airport in Baku is the principal airport of Azerbaijan, and potentially a major hub for the whole of the Caucasus region.

In designing a new international terminal at the existing airport, Arup aimed to create a facility equal to the very best in the world. The terminal is designed to meet a projected demand of 3m passengers per year.
Encouraging relaxation, minimising stress

The aim of the aesthetic design is to create spaces which are a pleasure to use, encourage relaxation and minimise stress. This is achieved through generously-proportioned, naturally-lit spaces with extensive internal and external views. The terminal will also offer luxury shopping and leisure areas.

The design includes a tapered fašade which gives the building a unique appearance. The innovative shape allows light from the fašade and roof to enter the space. Skylights are an integral part of the steel structure of the roof.
Design by Arup

Arup is responsible for the design of a new fašade for the existing international terminal. The work will include stripping the existing fašade, adding insulation and replacing with a metal mesh fašade in harmony with the design of the new terminal.

The terminal design has been greatly influenced by the vision and design ideas of the client, Mr Jahangir Askerov, president of Azerbaijan Airways (AZAL).

Baku is a seismic zone, and the design uses a frame resistant system to allow for seismic forces. The terminal will have eight air bridges and is compatible with the Boeing 676 aircraft.

The construction of this unique project began with the completion of new entrance tollgate in October 2010. The bulk of the remaining construction is scheduled to begin in early 2011 and finish in 2013.

Azerbaijan buys more Boeings

Boeing 787-8 Azerbaijan's Silkway Airlines has purchased a Boeing 747-400F cargo plane from Cargolux Airlines International.
The head of the State Civil Aviation Administration, Arif Mammadov, said the the purchase was designed to turn Baku into a link between West and East.

"I want to say that it is the first time we have entered one of the biggest, heaviest aircraft into the state register of Azerbaijan. All the international documentation for this plane will be ready on 10 November, after which it will start to fly under the Azerbaijani flag," Mammadov said.

Mammadov said another Boeing 747-400F would be bought next year.

"In addition, other Azerbaijani companies are also expected to purchase Boeing 747-400Fs in 2011. Of course, more steps will be taken to expand aviation in the future," he said.

Boeing has several orders on its books from Azerbaijan.

"We are planning to supply several passenger planes to Azerbaijan next year and a Boeing-787-8 in 2014," Boeing's senior vice president for the Middle East, Central and South Asia, Martin Bentrott, told APA.

Azerbaijani Airlines (AZAL) are to purchase eight planes from Boeing: two 767-300 ERs, two 767 cargo planes, two 737 and two 787-8 passenger airliners.
