BAKU, Azerbaijan: July 20, 2018. Following the signing of a new EU-Japan trade deal that covers 25 percent of world GDP, JAL Cargo is to begin using Silk Way West Airlines 747-8 freighter capacity between Asia and Europe via Baku.

SWW JAL dealSilk Way says it plans to increase frequencies from Japan via Baku to Europe from three to four a week.

“We are delighted and honoured to enter into this co-operation with JAL Cargo. It perfectly fits into our growth strategy we are pursuing in reference to our footprint in Japan,” said Silk Way president and CEO Wolfgang Meier (right of picture).

“Right from the start of our Japan services more than two years ago, we have always been eager to increase our exposure. The co- operation with JAL does represent a quantum leap in our development and I am happy both carriers will benefit from this agreement,” he added.

According to the European Commission, the signing of a massive trade agreement with Japan this week removes trade barriers, helps shape global trade rules and sends “a powerful signal that two of the world's biggest economies reject protectionism”.

EU companies already export over €58 billion in goods and €28 billion in services to Japan every year.

“Having these kind of positive communications is pleasing JAL Cargo and we welcome very much more capacities especially with the use of Silk Way West’s Boeing 747-8F aircraft within our network,” commented Hiroo Iwakoshi, executive officer Cargo/Mail and JAL Cargo board member.
