SF Airlines opts for Boeing Shanghai for maintenance contract

Boeing Shanghai Aviation Services has signed a maintenance agreement with Chinese-based SF Airlines  for its Boeing Classic 737 and 767-300 freighters.
The first airplane is already undergoing a C-check in Boeing Shanghai’s facilities at Shanghai Pudong International Airport and more airplanes will follow on a nose-to-tail basis.
"With this contract, Boeing Shanghai has made a major step forward to expand its aircraft maintenance services in the fast-growing Chinese cargo market," Boeing said.
“SF Airlines’ long-term development strategy requires the highest world standard aircraft maintenance services to ensure safety and on-time performance. We truly believe that Boeing Shanghai is our best choice and our cooperation will be productive and mutually beneficial,” added SF Airlines.
Currently, SF Airlines has an all-cargo aircraft fleet of 39 aircraft composed of Boeing 767s, 757s and 737s.
It operates the largest all-cargo aircraft fleet in China and its air cargo volume is increasing year by year. 
Boeing Shanghai is a joint venture between Boeing, Shanghai Airport Authorities and China Eastern Airlines.
