The newly-built airports in the liberated Azerbaijani territories contribute to the development of tourism in the country, Chairman of the Board of the Small and Medium Business Development Agency (KOBIA) of Azerbaijan Orkhan Mammadov said on Thursday.
He made the remarks while speaking at an event themed “Tourism Business: Current Situation and Prospects” in Baku, News.Az reports.

The KOBIA chairman noted that an airport is expected to be inaugurated in liberated Lachin at the end of 2023 or in early 2024.
