Jeddah, Saudi Arabia to Baku is an approximately 9.5-hour flight. The time zone changes from Arabian Standard Time (AST) to Azerbaijan Standard Time (AZT), which is usually a 1 hour difference. Prepare for much colder weather when traveling from Jeddah in May: high temperatures in Baku hover around 28°C and lows are around 17°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 30th (Sun) to allow enough time to drive to Gobustan.
