China-based express carrier SF Airlines has added freighter number 80 and expects more to be added this year.

The carrier took delivery of the B767-300 Boeing Converted Freighter on March 26, which coincided with the 30th anniversary of parent company SF Express.

The SF Airlines fleet now includes three B747-400ERFs, 19 B767-300BCFs, 41 B757-200Fs, and 17 B737-300/400Fs.

The airline has added an average of six freighters to its fleet each year since its launch in 2009.

“At present, 80 all-cargo aircraft of SF Airlines are deployed in more than 40 cities and regions across the country, with an average of nearly 150 flights per day,” the company said.

SF Airlines took delivery of the aircraft at its SF Express South China Transit Center at Shenzhen Bao’an International Airport.

SF Airlines is also jointly developing a huge 2.4m tonne capacity cargo airport in Ezhou, which will connect its regional and international services covering Asia Pacific, Europe and the US.

The airport handled its first flight in July last year.
