Passengers will be able to use the Baku-Tbilisi-Kars rail line from 2019 according to the head of Azerbaijan Railway, Javed Gurbanov.
He said passenger operations will start once the railway receives its order of Stadler trains.
”I met with Stadler representatives, they clarified that trains will be ready by the beginning of 2019,” said Gurbanov.
The Baku-Tbilisi-Kars railway officially opened last year.
The implementation of the Baku-Tbilisi-Kars railway project began in 2007. The railway is being constructed on the territory of three countries: Azerbaijan, Georgia and Turkey.
