January 24 - World Airways, a subsidiary of Global Aviation Holdings, and Silk Way Airlines have completed a teaming agreement to provide outsized air freight service to the US military.
The agreement provides freight services beginning this month utilising Silk Way's IL-76 aircraft. Global Aviationprovides lift for US military passengers and cargo on its two charter airlines, World Airways and North American Airlines, through its teaming arrangement with the Air Mobility Command.
"Silk Way's experience and expertise in handling outsized cargo, especially to non-traditional destinations, is a great addition to our military support programme," said Rob Binns, Global's chairman and ceo.
"World Airways complements Silk Way's capabilities given its many years of experience dealing with the US Military," said Zaur Akhundov, president of Silk Way Airlines. We are looking forward to offering additional services to the US military that are naturally complementary to World, North American, and Silk Way's existing routes as well as the natural advantages offered by the Baku hub."
Silk Way, based in Baku, Azerbaijan, offers both scheduled and charter flights to more than 50 destinations worldwide, including Afghanistan, Iraq and West Kazakhstan. Silk Way operates a fleet of nine Ilyushin-76 aircraft, three Antonov AN-12s and two Boeing 747-400 freighters.
Silk Way says its international freight services include: oil and gas equipment, construction material and heavy industrial equipment, automobiles, vehicles and spare parts, humanitarian cargo, live animals and perishables, foodstuff, stage and exhibition equipment, consumer goods consignments, and hazardous goods handled in full compliance with ICAO standards.
