Once complete, the airline will complete negotiations to purchase up to 15 passenger 737-300s. Some of these are destined for conversion, while the remainder will be used for parts.The orders are part of the airline’s rapid expansion, since launching in 2009, that saw it take delivery of its 16th freighter, a 737-300, this September.Its current fleet now stands at five 737-300Fs, three 737-400Fs and eight 757-200Fs. It also has four passenger 757-200s due for conversion.To support its planned growth, it has claimed in the Chinese press that it intends to build its own dedicated airport near Wuhan, in the central-eastern province of Hubei, or somewhere else near where it currently operates, out of Shenzhen Bao’an International Airport, in central-southern China.SF Airlines is owned by SF Express.
