Silk Way adds Liege connection

Silk Way West Airlines has added regular flights between Liege Airport in Belgium and its global cargo hub in Baku, Azerbaijan.

"The aim is to further knit our European network by adding more destinations and maintaining a denser schedule in order to offer our customers the highest flexibility," said Wolfgang Meier, president and ceo at Silk Way West Airlines.  

The twice-weekly flights into Liège are part of Silk Way West's European expansion plans, which also includes the addition of two Boeing 747-400F aircraft to its fleet.

The first of the two freighters has already joined Silk Way West's fleet of more than ten aircraft, while the second freighter will join the airline in June. 

The extension of the airline's European network follows the re-launch of operations at Budapest Airport, as HLPFI reported here

The new service to Budapest, which was cancelled two years ago, is also part of Silk Way West's European expansion strategy, which has also seen the carrier integrate Vienna and Kiev into its network.
