No AZAL passengers affected by Istanbul airport terror attacks

There are no passengers or employees of the Azerbaijan Airlines (AZAL) among those affected by the terror attacks in the Istanbul airport, Pasha Kasamanski, head of AZAL press service, has told Trend.

“The flight from Istanbul to Baku, scheduled for 23:30 Baku time (GMT +4), has been postponed for an indefinite period as the Ataturk Airport was shut down,” said Kasamanski.

“At the time when the terrorist attack took place, our passengers’ registration was over, and they together with AZAL staff were waiting in the waiting hall for landing.”

“Therefore, our passengers were not in the area where the blasts occurred,” he added.

Currently, as Kasamanski said, the passengers are still in the waiting hall.
