Silkway makes salmon fly
As of today, 27 September 2019, Silkway West Airlines will inaugurate a once weekly B747-400F service between Oslo airport (Norway) and its hub Baku. In the capital of Azerbaijan, the cargo carrier is operating an air cargo centre which includes temperature controlled and perishable facilities, thus connecting the Norwegian salmon industry with global destinations.
Silkway commercial director Europe Riad Fataliyev: "We have been flying Norwegian seafood for many years through other European gateways, and we are now very pleased to finally add Oslo to our global network."
Martin Langaas, director cargo of Oslo airport's operating company Avinor: "Silkway is with their new route recognising our airport as the most significant cargo hub in Northern Europe." (ah)
