SF Airlines continues freighter fleet expansion

By Damian Brett

Express carrier SF Airlines has continued its fleet expansion with the addition of freighter number 75.

The carrier this week took delivery of a B767-300 freighter ahead of the air cargo peak season, said Chinese press agency Xinhau.

The airline has added seven freighters to its fleet so far this year, following on from the addition of seven aircraft in 2021.

The airline has been expanding its transport capacity and air-route network to provide efficient and stable transport services for diverse products, especially fresh agricultural products. 

SF Airlines is also jointly developing a huge 2.4m tonne capacity cargo airport in Ezhou, which will connect its regional and international services covering Asia Pacific, Europe and the US.

The airport handled its first flight in July.

Headquartered in Shenzhen, SF Airlines is the aviation branch of China’s express delivery giant SF Express.
