MASkargo, the air cargo division of Malaysian Airlines, and Silk Way Airlines of Azerbaijan have signed a strategic partnership that will expand their network’s reach.

The agreement paves the way for greater collaboration between the airlines on cargo space agreements, ground handling and line maintenance.

Both airlines will have access to each other’s capacity throughout their global networks.

“The signing of the memorandum of cooperation between Silk Way Airlines and MASkargo signifies a collaboration that will enhance each other’s network and meet their market needs,” said MASkargo CEO Mohd Yunus Idris.

MASkargo hopes to build relations in the cargo business with Baku, Azerbaijan as a transit center.

The backbone industry of Azerbaijan is oil and gas with a booming industry in construction and agriculture. It is becoming one of the fastest-growing economies in the region.
