South Korea’s Incheon Airport has honored Silk Way West Airlines with the prestigious "Cargo Airline of the Year 2020" award, recognizing the company as the best air freighter achieving up to 25,000 tons of international cargo turnover.

The airport’s annual award ceremony is now in its fifth edition, having first been held in 2016. Incheon Airport, located near Seoul, is one of the largest and busiest airports globally. In 2020, it took fourth place at the Skytrax World Airport Awards ranking of the world’s top 10 airports.

Silk Way West Airlines began operations to Incheon Airport in October 2014. Since then, the company has achieved a strong sales performance on its route to this major Korean hub, thanks to an unrivalled focus on operational excellence.

“This success is the result of fantastic cooperation with our partners across the world. We are proud of having received such a prestigious award from one of the world’s largest airports,“ said Kyung-Hwan Kim, Silk Way West Airlines general manager Korea and regional capacity control manager.
