Passengers will be able to travel by train connecting Baku, Tbilisi, and Ankara, but the precise date is not definite yet.
As Azerbaijani media outlets report, the Azerbaijani Railway purchased 20 Swiss wagons several years ago.
A train may contain 257 people.
It will take seven hours to arrive from Tbilisi to Baku, 12 – to visit Kars and about 34-36 hours – to enter Ankara.
The ticket price is unknown yet, but the price will vary depending on the wagon category.
The Turkish side reported that the night train service (Baku-Tbilisi-Ankara) had been postponed, while it was up to operate in August.
Railway expert Davit Gochava says that there is a problem in Georgia to host the new train.
According to him, once the construction of the railway infrastructure is over, Azerbaijan and Georgia should create a joint enterprise that will control the train movement, but the railway company does not exist yet.
