At the meeting, the parties expressed satisfaction with the strong partnership between the two countries in the field of aviation.
According to Jahangir Asgarov, modern transport infrastructure has been created in Azerbaijan, and there is great potential for further expansion of cooperation in the transport, transit and logistics spheres: ‘In particular, Boeing, the largest US Aerospace Corporation, is a strategic partner of Azerbaijan Airlines. AZAL’s fleet includes several types of Boeing aircraft, including the modern 787-8 Dreamliner. In addition, the Open Skies agreement between Azerbaijan and the United States has been in effect since June 2016, thanks to which operators have been provided with more affordable and efficient services for passenger and cargo transportation by air’.
