Azerbaijani Airlines, AZAL, may start to operate direct flights to the U.S. from summer or fall 2014, U.S. Ambassador to Azerbaijan Richard Morningstar said on March 18.

"The U.S. Federal Aviation Administration has already issued a certificate allowing Azerbaijani Airlines to operate direct flights to the U.S.," the ambassador said.

He further said several inspections on security issues must be carried out, which is should not be a problem.

"I believe this is another area proving cooperation between Azerbaijan and the United States. I think we should not forget about all the other areas where we cooperate and actually making progress," Morningstar said.

Earlier, the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) ranked Azerbaijan in category 1 for aviation safety.

The FAA determined that the Azerbaijani State Civil Aviation Authority (SCAA) is effectively fulfilling its safety oversight obligations as a member state of the International Civil Aviation Organization in all eight critical elements.
