    FIVE KILLED IN PLANE CRASH AT BAKU AIRPORT. A Ukrainian-owned Ilyushin-76 cargo plane crashed at Baku's Bina Airport on 4 March, killing at least five of the plane's seven-member crew, Interfax and the "Baku Sun" reported. The plane was en route from Ankara to Kabul and crashed minutes into its takeoff from the Baku airport after refueling. Azerbaijani officials reported that an investigation into the crash is now under way. RFE/RL Newsline 05.03.2004

    FT: OBSERVER: Strained OBSERVER COLUMN Financial Times ; 29-Mar-2000 Strained Quick thinking on the flight deck of a Lufthansa aircraft stranded at Baku in far away Azerbaijan. Airport authorities there claimed the airline owed them money - and refused to refuel the aircraft until the debt was settled. Lufthansa flatly rejected the demand, saying the bill had been paid the day before. Airport staff refused to budge as well, so the crew resolved the crisis themselves. In order to conserve enough of the remaining fuel to get the aircraft across the Caspian Sea to Turkmenistan, they unloaded all the cargo and luggage and removed the catering equipment. And in a final bid to lighten up, the Lufthansa folk even siphoned off all the water from the onboard lavatories. Leaving all the passengers in their seats to fret about just how long it would take them to get on the ground in Ashgabat.

    ANS News, March 16, 2000, Leyla Osmanova INCIDENT IN BAKU'S BINA AIRPORT WILL AFFECT AZERBAIJAN'S IMAGE An unpleasant incident to cause damage to Azerbaijan's international image occurred at Baku's Bina Airport yesterday, when the AZALoil company refused to supply a Lufthansa airliner with fuel. This was announced by Lufthansa's General Manager in the Transcaucasus, Arne Hoffmann in his interview with ANS. According to AZALoil's representatives, the German airline owe some money to the company. Whereas, Mr Hoffmann says it's not true, because the airline had transferred $10,000 to AZALoil's account on March 14. Mr Hoffmann says Lufthansa has been working in Azerbaijan for five years and never had debts to any of AZAL state airline's structures. Besides, Lufthansa applies the advance payment policy in its operations in Azerbaijan. It's noteworthy that Azerbaijan is member of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) and according to the latter's regulations, advance payment policy is illegal in all its forms. According to Mr Hoffmann, Lufthansa is one of the world's largest airlines and the activity agreements it concludes in all countries where it operates, includes a 30-day credit and 10-day payment terms. This policy is applied worldwide. The Lufthansa representative noted that the airline's head office raised the issue on stopping its operations in Azerbaijan under present circumstances. Said Mr Hoffmann: "Of course, we want to work in Azerbaijan. We need Azerbaijan as much as it needs us but it seems that AZALoil doesn?t think so." Mr Hoffmann also said an economic council will be held at the German Embassy in Baku to discuss the recent developments around this issue. The German businessman also said all foreign embassies will be notified of the incident that won't help increasing Azerbaijan's international image. The President of the state concern AZAL, Jahangir Asgarov said he knew nothing of the incident with Lufthansa. Asgarov told ANS he would look deeper into the issue to clarify the situation. Brushing aside the rumours that some foreign airlines are planning to leave Azerbaijan, the AZAL president said the situation is quite normal. All this is the evidence of that the issue will probably be investigated in higher instances.

    Urumqi Baku Flight Starts Service
    Urumqi, May 5 (Xinhua) -- An Azerbaijani Airlines Tu-154 passenger plane arrived here this afternoon to start regular flights between Baku, capital of Azerbaijan, and Urumqi, capital of northwest China's Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region. The flight takes three hours and 50 minutes between the two cities, nearly 3,000 km apart. The service is both ways every Wednesday. According to the Urumqi office of Azerbaijani Airlines, since 1994, it operates over 600 chartered flights between Baku and some Chinese cities including Urumqi and Tianjin, a north China port city. An Azerbaijani Airlines official, Fouad Kouliev, expressed hope that the opening of the regular flight will help boost economic and cultural exchanges between this former Soviet republic and China.

    Azerbaijan expects to earn $100 million this year by allowing its airspace be used for cargo air transit, officials at the state concern Azerbaijan Hava Hollari said. The volume of air cargo transit across the Azeri airspace has been doubling every month and has reached 10 million tons so far this year. More than 100 flights cross the republic's airspace daily now and the Bina airport here can receive 80 planes a day. Journal of Commerce October 16, 1998

    The number of airline passengers decreased by 9% due to high prices. In the first nine months of 1997 28% of the flights were carried out by international airlines like Lufthansa and Turkish Airlines, 40% by CIS Airlines like Turkmenistan Airlines and Uzbekistan Airways and 32% by domestic airlines like Azerbaijan Airlines and Imair.
