SF Airlines adds freighter 50 and launches Bangkok route

On December 21 Chinese express carrier SF Airlines added its fiftieth freighter, shortly after adding number 49.
The airline said that the delivery of a Boeing 757-200 converted freighter marked an important milestone as it officially becomes a medium-sized airline.
In recent years, SF Airlines, which only started operations in 2009, has successfully launched special freighter transportation routes for fresh products and electronic products such as hairy crabs from Yangcheng Lake, big cherries from Yantai, juicy peaches from Wuxi, lychees from Hainan and mobile phone parts made in China.
This year, the airline also took delivery of its first B747F as it looks to grow its international services. On December 20, the airline took delivery of another B757-200F.
Its fleet now consists of one B747-400ERF, five B767-300BCF, 27 B757-200F, 14 737-300F and three B737-400F.
Shortly after taking delivery of the two aircraft, SF Airlines officially launched the "Lanzhou-Bangkok" international freight route utilising a B757-200F. The transported goods are mainly general cargoes and fresh products.
