We posted a deal to Baku from Newark yesterday. It was the first time we posted a deal to Baku. The same deal is available from Lufthansa’s partner United from Chicago and Washington D.C.
For a good writeup on what Baku is trying to become, read this good New York Times writeup from February. Our reader, Heath who’s been to Baku informed us that getting a visa is a time consuming process but definitely worth it. Please take that into account.
