Silkway West Airlines - a lighthouse of stability in the Corona Storm. Silkway West Airlines continues to prove its stability during difficult times where continued air operations are becoming difficult and almost impossible. In times of crisis, the airline has repeatedly proven its loyalty to the Baku - Tel Aviv line and is one of the main pipelines that continue to deliver oxygen to and from Israel's air operations. Silkway West airline, which normally operates two weekly flights, has joined the effort and has responded to our request to increase the number of flights and, accordingly, the cargo capacity that can be suggested to Israeli market. This special effort is reflected in the operation of a third cargo freighter in the week that landed in Israel last Friday (March 27, 2020) on a flight from Shanghai carrying more than 100 tonnes of cargo mostly containing medical equipment that was stuck in China.
