Earlier, an agreement was reached with the authorities of the monarchy on the implementation of flights from June 15 to such cities of Saudi Arabia as Ed-Dammam and Riyadh, the press service of Azerbaijan Hava Yollary reported. 

Thus, the number of cities in Saudi Arabia, to which flights will be operated by the national air carrier of Azerbaijan, will be increased to six.
