Silk Way West to increase Maastricht Aachen Airport services

Silk Way West to increase Maastricht Aachen Airport services

Silk Way West Airlines has increased services to Maastricht Aachen Airport (MST) in the Netherlands’ second largest cargo gateway.

Recently, Silk Way West Airlines has started to operate one weekly flight, but will gradually increase to four by the end of October.

Silk Way West Airlines is the parent company of Sky Gates Airlines, which already operates four flights per week between Maastricht Aachen Airport and Moscow.

With the planned increases, the total number of flights from Silk Way and its group related carriers will become eight. This will make Maastricht Aachen Airport the largest European gateway for the Azerbaijan airline.

Azerbaijan Airlines president, Jahangir Askerov says: “MST is one of the few European airports where full freighters can continue to grow and is an important niche market for us.”

Maastricht Aachen Airport managing director, Jos Roeven says: “We are delighted with this decision and like to thank Silkway for their confidence and trust in our services.”
