Azerbaijani cargo airline Silk Way West Airlines has once again passed audit procedure of the International Air Transport Association (IATA) for compliance with the IOSA standard (IATA Operational Safety Audit) and extended the certificate for another two years.

Given that the requirements of this standard are tightened each year, this audit has once again proved Silk Way West Airlines as a reliable cargo airline that meets the strictest international safety requirements in civil aviation.

IOSA (IATA "Operational Safety Audit" program) - a few hundred mandatory standards and recommended procedures, structured into several sections. The airline should confirm compliance with them during the audit. Safety analysis includes not only assessment of production activities of the airline, but also its organizational structure. There is a system to minimize risks from the influence of the human factor and a feedback system that enables timely ensuring the corrective actions. Operations by each employee of the airline is registered down to the smallest details, which suggests flight safety techniques.

It should be noted that earlier national passenger airline Azerbaijan Airlines (AZAL) received IOSA certificate.

Silk Way West Airlines started its activity on June 19, 2012, since the date of issuance of the Operator Certificate by the Civil Aviation Administration of Azerbaijan. Currently, Silk Way West Airlines fleet consists of four Boeing 747-8F aircrafts and two Boeing 747-400F. The company expects to receive one more B747-8F this year, and then its fleet will grow up to seven. The delivery of new Boeing freighter will enable the airline to widen the geography of flights.

Silk Way West Airlines operates regular flights to various regions of the world – Asia, Europe, the Middle East and North America, using the Heydar Aliyev International Airport as a transit hub, connecting the continents with one another.
