I haven't seen this mentioned anywhere else on A.net.
Eastern Airways have launched a codeshare agreement with Azerbaijan Airlines to fly from Baku to Aberdeen twice weekly on an A320.
This seems like a very long and thin routing to me. It's 2600 miles and according to this press release the selling point is onward connections to Norway and the UK at the ABZ end and other connections including Kazakhstan, Georgia, Iran and Dubai at the GYD end.
I'm guessing this is targeted at the oil and gas industry, but at two flights a week seems to infrequent?
Does anyone have any insight how the loads are looking? Is this a viable flight?

I think the flight, operated by Azerbijan Airlines has been operated since May 2012 - Eastern have only now announced a code share on the route. J2 also have 3 weekly flights to LHR on A320s - so long, thin low frequency routes seems to be their thing
