The service is scheduled to end on Sept. 30, 2019. The hardware is a Boeing 787 Dreamliner that flies the route on Mondays and Saturdays. If you are looking to catch the last flight back to JKF on September 30, the flight is still bookable.

If you are wondering what you can expect to find on board the 787 Dreamliner, you can read our review of the flight.

And if you are headed to the region after September 30, you still have plenty of options to get there. Lufthansa, Turkish Airlines, and Qatar airlines all have service into Baku. Another interesting option: fly Emirates A380 service from JFK to Dubai and continue your trip with flydubai’s service to Baku.
