Silk Way West Airlines flies humanitarian aid to Iraq


Silk Way West Airlines has supported the German NGO Wings of Help by flying urgently needed aid supplies to Iraq where more than 23,000 children were awaiting help.

A Boeing 747 Freighter departed Frankfurt Hahn Airport on 23 June, loaded with infant food, nappies and rusk, and on 26 June an Ilyushin 76 of Silkway Airlines provided a feeder flight from Baku, Azerbaijan to Erbil, Iraq.

Silk Way West Airlines president and chief executive officer, Wolfgang Meier says: “We are supporting Wings of Help since a long time and are very proud to be also part of this mission.

“Wings Of Help is doing a very important job by providing aid supplies to the refugee camps of Hasan Sham and Dibaga and we are doing our utmost to support them with our knowhow and fleet of cargo aircrafts wherever we can.”

Talking about the Ilyushin flight, Meier says: “Despite the fact that such feeders are daily routine for Silkway, these dedicated aid supplies in cooperation with Wings of Help will always remain something special for all of us at Silkway.”
