Swissport partners with Silk Way West Airlines in Spain
17 / 01 / 2023
Swissport will provide cargo handling services for Silk Way West Airlines at Zaragoza Airport in Spain.
Azerbaijani cargo airline Silk Way West currently operates one flight per week to Zaragoza, said Swissport in a LinkedIn post.
In October 2022, Lufthansa and SWISS extended their agreement with Swissport for cargo handling at five airports on the Iberian Peninsula.
Later that month the cargo handler announced it would open a new air cargo centre at Chubu Centrair International Airport as it looks to meet growth in Japan’s Tokai region.
Silk Way West Airlines is currently modernising its fleet.
In June last year, the carrier signed a purchase agreement with Airbus for two A350 freighters.
Then in November, it finalised an order with Boeing for two B777-8F freighters, with options for two additional aircraft of the same type.
Boeing launched the new 777-8F in January 2022 and has booked more than 50 orders for the model.
