Silk Way West Airlines and Nippon Express Holdings have signed a memorandum of understanding to offer enhanced air freight solutions between Baku and Japan and across the carrier’s network amidst changing supply chains.
The airline said the agreement strengthens its presence in the Japanese market whilst helping Nippon Express Holdings to expand globally by providing cargo capacity across a worldwide network.
Silk Way West Airlines has been serving the Japanese air cargo market since 2018 with weekly flights connecting Baku with Kansai International Airport. The cargo airline started offering regular flights to Narita International Airport, considered ‘the important air cargo gateway in Japan’, in 2021.
The carrier expects to play an increasingly important role in the region’s freight network, with the conditions of the memorandum aligning perfectly with SWW’s growth strategy in Japan.
“Last year we celebrated the 30th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between Japan and the Republic of Azerbaijan. We are delighted and honoured with the signing of this memorandum, which will contribute to the further strengthening and development of economic relations between the two countries,” commented Wolfgang Meier, President of Silk Way West Airlines.
