Silk Way West Airlines launches Baku–Tianjin freighter link

Silk Way West Airlines (SWW) is to start a twice weekly freighter service to Tianjin connecting its global hub in Baku, Azerbijan, with one of the leading industrial centres in northern China.
The service will close the strategic gap in the carrier’s  network by offering full freighter services to booming Northern China, said Wolfgang Meier, SWW president.
“We have noticed a strong demand east and west bound with automotive and aerospace related goods leading the commodity list. Throughout the whole planning process there was a great cooperation with representatives of Tianjin Airport in order to set up the new flight for us for which we are thankful.”
The service will run every Friday and Sunday, connecting through the SWW Baku hub to more than 45 destinations in China, Central Asia, the Middle East, Europe, Africa and North America.
