The Azerbaijan Tourism Board hosted a press conference in Mumba to announce a significant milestone in Azerbaijan-India tourism relations. At the event, the tourism board announced the appointment of BRANDit as the new representative office in India, underscoring the growing interest of Indian travellers in Azerbaijan.

During the event, Florian Sengstschmid, CEO of the Azerbaijan Tourism Board, and Lubaina Sheerazi, CEO of BRANDit, shared their insights and future plans for enhancing Azerbaijan’s visibility in the Indian market.

“Tourism relations between Azerbaijan and India are at a historic high, with increasing arrival numbers and many new emerging experiences and tourism opportunities for Indians, including family and solo vacations, destination weddings, Bollywood and Tamil movies shooting. Comparing to the same period last year, the number of Indian tourists visiting Azerbaijan has surpassed a twofold rise (2.6). With the appointment of BRANDit as our representative office, we are poised to sustain and elevate this growing trend,” shared Florian Sengstschmid, CEO, Azerbaijan Tourism Board.

Sengstschmid also announced the successful completion of a roadshow in three Indian cities — Bangalore, Pune, and Kolkata — involving top Indian travel trade representatives, aimed at strengthening tourism partnerships.

Following his remarks, Lubaina Sheerazi, CEO & Co-Founder, BRANDit expressed her enthusiasm for the collaboration. “We’re thrilled to partner with the Azerbaijan Tourism Board as part of BRANDit’s growing portfolio. Our collaboration aims to unveil Azerbaijan’s hidden treasures and connect Indians with its unique experiences and use our expertise in the Indian outbound market, travel trade, and media to capture the growing interest in the destination,” she mentioned.

Azerbaijan’s growing popularity among Indian tourists is attributed to its accessible flights, hassle-free e-visa process, and vibrant cultural and business environment. E-visas, obtainable from within 3 days for just USD 26, along with non-stop flights, make travel to Azerbaijan seamless.
