Silk Way West Airlines starts Liege freighter route and adds aircraft

Silk Way West Airlines has added regular flights between Liège Airport and its global cargo hub in Baku, Azerbaijan with the twice-weekly route starting at the end of April.

The carrier’s president and chief executive officer, Wolfgang Meier said: “The aim is to further knit our European network by adding more destinations and maintaining a denser schedule in order to offer our customers the highest flexibility.”

Along with the recent re-launch of operations at Budapest Airport and the launch of scheduled services at Liège, Silk Way West Airlines is not only expanding the number of destinations, but also its fleet.

In order to maintain the steadily growing network, Silk Way West Airlines will add two Boeing 747-400F to its existing fleet of more than ten aircrafs. The first of the two freighters has joined Silk Way West Airlines last week, the second one will join the fleet in June.

“The two long expected additional aircrafts will further support the growth of the network by enhancing the options to make existing Silk Way West Airlines routes denser and add as well new destinations to its global network of more than 45 destinations,“ added Meier.​
