Silk Way West Airlines has increased the number of its Boeing 747 Freighter services from Baku to Chinese city of Zhengzhou to six times a week from four a week.

The appropriate agreements were reached at ICAO Cargo Conference in Zhengzhou held in early September. At the event Silk Way West Airlines announced about its plans of strategic development in China.

Silk Way West Airlines president and chief executive officer, Wolfgang Meier said: “With great pleasure we do announce the increase of our weekly flight frequencies between Baku and Zhengzhou from 4 to 6 weekly frequencies.

“With this we are entering into the new stage of our strategic cooperation with the Government of Henan Province and Zhengzhou Airport. We are excited to further strengthen this cooperation by seeing further growth.”

By having met senior representatives of the Henan Government it was agreed to further enhance the strategic cooperation in paving the way to significantly increase the frequencies between both Hubs in the future.

“Within a short period of time we manage to emerge as the one of the leading cargo carriers in Zhengzhou and we are aiming to further increase tonnage and flights as Zhengzhou provides for us the perfect platform to grow in view of our core capabilities to serve the Silk Air Route,” Meier added.
