SF Airlines has launched an air cargo route linking Ezhou Huahu Airport in central China’s Hubei Province with Budapest International Airport in Hungary.

This is the first air cargo route linking Ezhou Huahu Airport to Hungary and is also SF Airlines’ third route from this airport to Europe, reported China’s state press agency, Xinhua.

Operated by a Boeing 747-400 freighter, one round-trip flight is scheduled on this route every week, providing more than 200 tonnes of air-cargo delivery capacity per week.

The route will mainly transport parcel express and e-commerce goods, according to SF Airlines.

Ezhou Huahu Airport officially opened in July 2022 and is a cargo-focused hub airport with some passenger traffic. The airport features a 23,000 sq m cargo terminal, a nearly 700,000 sq m freight transit centre and two runways.

In April 2023, the airport marked its first international cargo route, operated by SF Airlines.

Headquartered in Shenzhen, SF Airlines is China’s largest air cargo carrier by fleet size. To date, it has established an international route network from Ezhou to destinations in Europe, North America, the Middle East, South Asia, Southeast Asia and East Asia.
