Silk Way West Airlines has become the latest airline to go live with CHAMP’s Weight & Balance load planning solution.

This will serve its fleet of Boeing 747 freighters after receiving an Azerbaijan CAA approval.

The choice of the Baku-based all-cargo airline to award the contract for Weight & Balance software to CHAMP Cargosystems re-affirms its strong relationship with CHAMP.

Serving more than 50 destinations worldwide, Silk Way West Airlines was searching for a credible IT solution that would allow their staff to perform their load planning faster, with greater accuracy, whilst optimising the fuel burn of their aircraft.

“We congratulate CHAMP Cargosystems on winning our tender for such a critical IT product as the automated aircraft load planning solution,” commented Emile Khasanshin, Silk Way West Airlines Vice President Global Operations. “We were looking for a product that would let us simplify and streamline aircraft weight and balance work processes, while meeting our operational requirements and load restrictions. Their constant support to our project team and the smooth cutover is a testament to CHAMP’s commitment to their customers.”
