This is very cheap — the last few months, AZAL and Ukraine Airlines had this for about $560. We have never flown AZAL, but here are the reviews from Airline Quality. They are generally positive.
AZAL flies Airbus A340 widebody planes between New York and Baku and Airbus A319 between Baku and Tel Aviv. This fare does not earn any miles, just cheap ticket to Tel Aviv.
AZAL only service New York three times a week on the outbound – Monday, Thursday and Saturday. The fare states that a stopover in Baku is permitted — we have not try to see whether or not inventory actually exist for a stopover. If you do manage to price a stopover, be mindful that getting a visa for Azerbaijan is a very long process.
Sample Travel Date:
- December 3rd – 9th

- Please note that while this fare is valid at time of posting, if this post is more than two days old, the fare is likely gone.
