Silk Way West Airlines announces the first commercial flight to Istanbul on its newly delivered Boeing 777F

Silk Way West Airlines, the leading cargo airline in the Caspian and Central Asian region, is proud to announce the first commercial flight to Istanbul by a newly delivered Boeing 777F aircraft. The Boeing 777F is the world’s largest twin-engine and most efficient and environmentally friendly freighter on the market. This addition to the Silk Way West Airlines fleet will contribute to the airline’s sustainability goals and ensure its commitment to reducing emissions.

The new aircraft will replace the Boeing 747-400F that previously operated the Baku-Istanbul route, delivering a range of general cargo. By embarking upon this exciting journey with its new state-of-the-art aircraft, Silk Way West Airlines strengthens its position on the global air cargo market. The expansion marks a further step in Silk Way West Airlines' efforts to expand its international network to meet the increasing demand for cargo transportation.

“We are immensely proud to witness this momentous occasion as our new aircraft, the Boeing 777F, stretches its wings for the first time" said Vugar Mammadov, Vice-President of Silk Way West Airlines. "This marks the beginning of an exciting chapter for our airline, as we continue to uphold the highest standards of safety and reliability while embracing the evolving landscape of cargo transportation. I am confident that our fleet renewal and expansion will further strengthen the company's leading position in the global airfreight market for the next 15-20 years. "
