Availability

There is widespread availability in the months of March and April. Flights in later months are just a little bit more expensive, but are still highly affordable considering the prices you pay on full-service carriers such as Azerbaijan Airlines.

Tickets must be booked through Wizz Air’s website or app. Do note that these fares are hand baggage only and you can only bring a small rucksack with you on board.

If you want to travel with a trolley bag as hand luggage, or check in a bag into the hold of the plane, surcharges apply.

Wizz Discount Club

To be able to book these low fares you must be a member of the Wizz Air Discount Club. Wizz Air club members get a 10 euro discount on all flights costing 20 euro or more, and receive a discount on checked baggage too. The same discount is included for maximum one travel companion.

If you purchase group membership, the discount applies for up to five people.

Discount Club membership can be bought for 30 euro and is valid for a year. This means that you only have to take three (one-way) Wizz Air flights a year to earn back the costs of the membership.

Baku

Azerbaijan is an interesting country to visit and most European nationalities can benefit from the relatively new e-visa programme. Do however check current entry requirements and the latest corona virus travel restrictions before you book!

Baku is a surprisingly nice city which has an intriguing mix between different architectural styles, having been at the crossroads of so many great empires.

There are Medieval Turkic and Persian influences abound in the old town, elegant Tsarist-era mansions from the time when the Russian oil barons were the first to exploit Baku’s natural resourced in the late 19th Century, as well as modern-day architecture funded by recent oil boom money which wouldn’t look out of the place in Dubai.

Azerbaijan

It’s easy to use Baku as a base to explore more corners of Azerbaijan. Trains in Azerbaijan are cheap and connect the most important cities.

You could for example visit the cute town of Sheki in the foothills of the Caucasus Mountains, or visit Azerbaijan’s second-largest city of Ganja.
