January 14, 2020


Abstract : SF Airlines, China's largest cargo airline, will see its fleet of all-cargo freighters exceed 60 in 2020, according to the airline Monday.

SHENZHEN, Jan. 13 (Xinhua) -- SF Airlines, China's largest cargo airline, will see its fleet of all-cargo freighters exceed 60 in 2020, according to the airline Monday.

Besides the expanding fleet, SF Airlines will also see a continuously expanding global air route network with more than 70 destinations worldwide in 2020, said the cargo airline.

"China's air cargo market is embracing greater opportunities and challenges alongside the advance of the Belt and Road Initiative and higher demands in the global logistics system from all sectors," said Liddel Li, president of SF Airlines.

SF Airlines operates a total of 58 all-cargo freighters on its global air cargo service network with 65 destinations.

The Shenzhen-based cargo airline is the aviation branch of China's express giant SF Express. It provides specialized services for the booming express delivery business and other air freight services such as chartered freight flights.

Over the past decade, its fleet has carried more than 2.5 million tonnes of air cargo in around 330,000 flight hours worldwide, according to the airline.

In 2019, China's civil aviation industry handled a total of 7.52 million tonnes of air cargo, said statistics released by the Civil Aviation Administration of China.
