Baku Heydar Aliyev International Airport (Azerbaijani: Heydər Əliyev adına Beynəlxalq Hava Limanı) is one of the seven international airports serving Azerbaijan. Formerly, it was called Bina International Airport by the name of a suburb in Baku. On 10 March 2004, the airport was renamed for the former president Heydar Aliyev, the third President of Azerbaijan. The airport is located 20 kilometres northeast of Baku, connected to the city by a modern highway, which was put into operation in 2008. The airport serves as the home base for national carrier Azerbaijan Airlines and Buta Airways.

The airport has a wide range of shops, restaurants and cafés as well as Duty-Free stores in both the departures and arrivals areas. In addition to this, Terminal 1 contains five lounges as well as a spa.[3]

Baku Heydar Aliyev International Airport complies with international requirements. Its geographical location facilitates transfer flights between East and West and between North and South.

Terminals[edit]

Interior of Terminal 1

Two passenger terminals and two cargo terminals operate at Heydar Aliyev International Airport.

The old terminal built in Soviet times was entirely demolished and replaced by the new Terminal 1. The four-level engineering concept was developed in 2010 by Arup company with a tricorn shape and semi-transparent roof. The interior, designed by Turkish company AUTOBAN, has a series of oak-veneer “cocoons”.

There is Vanderlande baggage handling system in Terminal 1, as well as L-3 equipment for thorough baggage inspection and scanners designed to obtain a layered image of the internal structure of the object.

Terminal 1 operates jet bridges capable of receiving 12 aircraft simultaneously. Two jet bridges are intended for accommodating the world's largest passenger aircraft, the Airbus A380.

30 Schindler escalators and 21 elevators are installed in Terminal 1. Terminal 1 is equipped with a Building Management System (BMS) which is designed to automate processes and operations that are implemented in modern buildings and is the technical basis of the so-called intelligent buildings. Also, Terminal 1 is equipped with a separate system of resources support, such as electricity, lighting, ventilation, heating, air conditioning, water supply and sewerage.

In April 2014, Terminal 1 was commissioned. Its total area is 65,000 square meters. The terminal is designed for 6 million passengers per year. It currently serves up to 3 million passengers annually. The total parking area is 20,000 square meters for 600 vehicles.

In May 2018, Terminal 1 was rated “5 stars” by Skytrax, a British airline- and airport-rating company.

Architect Denisov Viktor Vasilyevich is the author of the project of Terminal 2, which currently serves both domestic flights (South entrance) and international flights of low-cost airlines (North entrance). The project was awarded the first prize in a competition in 1981 and was implemented in 1989.

Terminal 1 and 2
