The twice-weekly service will operate to Frankfurt using a Boeing 747-400 freighter and joins SF Airlines’ first European service from Ezhou, which calls at Liege.
SF Airlines said the flights will mainly transport “express mail, e-commerce cargo, general cargo”.

“Next, SF Airlines will continue to develop international routes in Ezhou, improve the service capabilities of the international supply chain, help Ezhou Huahu Airport build a world-class air cargo hub, and boost the high-quality development of the local air logistics industry and export-oriented economy.”
Earlier this year, SF Airlines added its 80th freighter aircraft.
The SF Airlines fleet now includes three B747-400ERFs, 19 B767-300BCFs, 41 B757-200Fs, and 17 B737-300/400Fs.
