Silk Way West Airlines continues fleet renewal with a further Boeing 777 Freighter

Silk Way West Airlines has expanded its commitment to modernise its fleet by amending its contract with Boeing to purchase an additional Boeing 777 Freighter, scheduled for delivery in 2025.

This amendment is an extension to the original agreement signed in April 2021, and further demonstrates Silk Way West Airlines’ commitment to sustainability in the air cargo industry.

This addition builds upon the initial contract, wherein Silk Way West Airlines committed to purchasing five Boeing 777 Freighter aircraft, two of which have already been received, with delivery of the remaining jets to take place by 2027.

Mr. Zaur Akhundov, President of Silk Way Group said: “At Silk Way West Airlines, we are committed to sustainability and reducing our environmental impact.

“The purchase of this additional Boeing 777 Freighter aircraft is a testament to our ongoing efforts to operate responsibly and minimize our carbon footprint.

“We are proud to partner with Boeing to further renew our fleet and contribute to a greener future for the aviation industry.”

Paul Righi, Boeing vice president of Commercial Sales and Marketing for Eurasia said: “The unmatched capacity, range and efficiency of the Boeing 777 Freighter will help Silk Way West Airlines expand its world-class cargo operations.

“As the airline continues to build its modern freighter fleet, we are proud to be a part of the journey and provide Silk Way West Airlines with the best solutions to support its future growth.”
