I think it looks much better, all it would need is an identical twin on the other symmetrical side, and two connection ports to the new terminal being built atm.

Why control tower is in the middle of nowhere? Looks somehow illogical for me, maybe I am not aware of some expansion plans.

Yes, it is a bit far from main terminals, but I have no information why:

Looks like an A340 to me. Than again, an A330 does have a very wide wings.

I don't know exactly, but there is a possibility that it is A340. Sometimes in flightradar24.com you can see 4K-AZ86 (Airbus A340-542) flying above Baku. One of the two A340-s is already in Baku and sometimes pilots are testing it.

Silk Way Airlines signs MoU for four 747-8 Freighters

Azerbaijan-based all-cargo carrier Silk Way Airlines signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Boeing to purchase four 747-8 Freighters. Silk Way’s Managing Director Shamsaddin Mirsalayev said the freighters would be delivered beginning in 2014 with the fourth unit arriving in 2017.

Silk Way currently operates three 747-400Fs and two 767-300Fs in scheduled service (mostly through its Silk Way West subsidiary), so adding the four 747-8Fs will effectively double its main-deck freight capacity. Silk Way also has two Il-76TD-90s, which it operates mostly in charter service.

Azerbaijani airline to get new planes in May

Delivery of new Brazilian Embraer aircraft to Azerbaijan will start in May, spokesman for Azerbaijan's national airline company AZAL Maharram Safarli said.

AZAL has purchased six aircraft from Brazil's giant Embraer, including four new planes, in a deal that will allow it to expand flights in November. The total value of the deal is $180.8 million, at list price, which will be included in Embraer's fourth quarter of 2012 backlog, the company's website said.

Two of the Embraer aircraft will be Embraer-170 and four of them -- Embraer-190 planes.

"The EMBRAER 190 is the ideal aircraft for the speed and range we need to open new routes. It`s a really versatile airplane that will give us the ability to fly to both domestic and international markets where we see strong growth potential," said President and Chairman of the Board of AZAL Jahangir Askerov.

"And with the EMBRAER 170, we can better match seat capacity to variations in demand across the network. The commonality of the two airplanes is a tremendous benefit, too," Askerov added.

Embraer S.A. is a Brazilian aerospace conglomerate that produces commercial, military and executive aircraft and provides aeronautical services.

Safarli also said that two new Airbus A-340 and one Boeing-787 Dreamliner will be added to the AZAL air park in 2014.

One of the Airbus A-340 has already been brought to Baku and at present, the airport team is conducting trial flights. Thereupon, the airliner will be sent abroad for interior and coloration work and it will be added to the airpark in late April 2013. The second one will be brought to the country in fall.

Meanwhile, AZAL introduced E-Jets as part of a fleet renewal strategy that includes replacement of its turboprop fleet. The carrier will configure its E170s and E190s in single class with 76 and 106 Elite seats, respectively.

The aircraft will enable the airline to increase frequencies between Baku and Nakhchivan Autonomous Republic and introduce new local and international services to cities such as Odessa, Volgograd, Sochi, Donestsk and others.
