Silk Way West Airlines Launches Direct Flights to Chicago


Silk Way West Airlines has opened direct cargo flights between Baku and the largest transportation hub in the United States, Chicago (Illinois).

The first flight from Heydar Aliyev International Airport to O’Hare International Airport was carried out on September 18.
