SF Airlines launches Frankfurt freighter link

By Damian Brett

Express operator SF Airlines has launched a new freighter service between Wuhan and Frankfurt (FRA) to cater for e-commerce demand.

The service represents SF Airlines’ fourth to Europe and the third international route from Wuhan, following the launch of flights to Tokyo and Osaka earlier this year.

The flight will be operated using a Boeing 747-400 freighter with a capacity of around 110 tonnes and will mainly carry e-commerce goods, textiles, auto parts, and large machinery and equipment.

SF Airlines currently operates the largest all-cargo aircraft fleet in China, with a fleet size of 60 aircraft.

In 2020, SF Airlines has opened two European routes; Changsha-Liege and Shanghai-Zagreb.
