Essen/ Baku, 01/11/2024 – Silk Way West Airlines and DextraData are thrilled to announce a new partnership as Silk Way West Airlines joins the Logipad community. Silk Way West Airlines, an Azerbaijani cargo airline based in Baku, is set to enhance its operations using Logipad by DextraData for EFB and EFF. The collaboration marks an exciting step forward in the world of cargo aviation.

Silk Way West Airlines, known for its cargo flights with route network covers over 40 destinations across Europe, the CIS, the Middle East, Central and Eastern Asia, and the Americas., is actively expanding its cargo aircraft fleet to achieve its ambitious growth plans. Recently, the airline celebrated the delivery of its first Boeing 777F, a significant milestone in its journey. 

In April 2021, Silk Way West Airlines placed an order for five Boeing 777 Freighters, initially to complement its existing Boeing 747 freighter fleet. Later, the airline expanded its agreement by ordering two Boeing 777-8F Freighters, set for delivery in the 2030 timeframe. 

On September 23, 2023, the airline received its first Boeing 777F in Everett and successfully transferred it to Baku from Everett-Paine Field, north of Seattle. The new aircraft made its debut to the press in Baku on October 3. 

With the substantial expansion of fleet, it was the opportune moment to further digitize the airline. As a result, Silk Way West Airlines has chosen to adopt the established EFB, Logipad, developed by the German software manufacturer DextraData. 

“We are delighted to have found the optimal EFB and EFF solution for our aircrafts with Logipad. We were aware that Logipad’s primary goal has always been to develop innovative solutions that simplify pilots’ tasks and enhance the overall efficiency of airlines. This commitment was the key factor in our decision to choose Logipad. We eagerly look forward to our collaboration,” said Wolfgang Meier, President of Silk Way West Airlines.  

“We are pleased to have gained another client in Silk Way West Airlines who places their trust in us. We will spare no effort in maintaining this trust with Logipad,” stated Dirk Leese, Manager of Process Automation Practice at Logipad.
