Baku Heydar Aliyev International Airport (Azerbaijani: Heyd?r ?liyev Beyn?lxalq hava liman?) (IATA: GYD, ICAO: UBBB) is one of the six 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 kilometers northeast of Baku, connected to the city by a modern highway, which was put into operation in 2008. It is the busiest airport in Azerbaijan and of the Caucasus. The airport serves as the home base for flag carrier Azerbaijan Airlines and its subsidiary Buta Airways as well as freight carrier Silk Way Airlines.
Two passenger terminals (International Terminal 1 and Domestic Terminal 2) 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 July 2010 by Arup company, with a tricorn shape and semi transparent roof. The total area is 65,000 square meters. The interior, designed by Turkish company AUTOBAN, has a series of oak-veneer 'cocoons'. Terminal 1, commissioned in April 2014, has twelve aerobridge equipped parking bays. The terminal is designed for 6 million passengers per year. It currently serves up to 3 million passengers per year. Terminal 2, which now only serves domestic flights, was completed in 1989. A hotel with 205 rooms is located at the airport near the terminals.
The airport has two runways; Runway 16/34 is 3,995 by 60 m (13,107 by 197 ft), Runway 17/35 is 3,200 by 45 m (10,499 by 148 ft).
