"Silk Way Group is a longstanding customer and operator of Boeing's products and services," said Marty Bentrott , vice president, Middle East , Russia and Central Asia Sales, Boeing Commercial Airplanes. "We value our partnership with Silk Way West and are grateful for their enduring confidence in Boeing and the 747-8 Freighter."
