The new direct scheduled route will operate every Thursday from Mumbai Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj International Airport to Baku Heydar Aliyev International Airport.
This is the second route serving the Indian air cargo market launched by Silk Way West Airlines this year, following the weekly service connecting Baku with Delhi Indira Gandhi International Airport upgraded in June by Boeing-747F flights with the capacity of 100 tons.
With the opening of these new flights to India, the carrier will play an increasingly important role in the Asian continental freight network, constantly improving the quality of air cargo transportation services for both Indian and international partners.
We are pleased to have a new air bridge in India that will connect us with Mumbai. In cooperation with our Indian partners, Silk Way West Airlines is consistently widening its network in the region. The geographic reach of our regular flight network continues to expand, as these new scheduled routes open a new page in the history of bilateral partnership between Silk Way West Airlines and our Indian counterparts”, said Wolfgang Meier, Silk Way West Airlines’ chief executive officer and president.
According to Johnny Rubio, Silk Way West Airlines’ chief commercial officer ISMEA (Indian Subcontinent, Middle East, Africa), India is among the top global cargo markets and a key part of the carrier’s commercial business strategy.
With this expanded footprint Silk Way West Airlines is now well placed to connect India to its global network offering a Boeing-747F schedule to our valued customers”, noted Rubio.
Taylor Logistics has been appointed as the Silk Way West Airlines’ second GSA (General Sales Agent) for India. The GSA will operate in Mumbai Airport, whereas Hercules Aviation has been retained as the carrier’s long-term Delhi Airport partner.
