Five B-787s for Azerbaijan
Azerbaijan Airlines has signed for another five Boeing 787-8s. Describing the Dreamliner as “a spectacular aircraft.” Azerbaijan Airlines’ president Jahangir Askarov said the order was the latest chapter in a long relationship with Boeing that had begun in the 1990s with Boeing 757s. Askarov added that he planned to buy two wide-bodies freighters from the US company, either the 777F or the 747-8F. One of Azerbaijan Airlines’ group subsidiaries is cargo specialist Silk Way Airlines, which already flies five 747-8Fs.
