History[edit]

Although a preparatory team for SF Airlines was founded in 2005, it wasn't until 2009 that he preparation was approved by the Civil Aviation Administration of China. A successful maiden flight was made on 31 December 2009.[2]

SF Airlines began its first flights, in 2010, to the plateau area of Yushu City, Qinghai carrying earthquake relief materials. Shortly after, a second Boeing 757-200F was put into operation.[3]

In 2011, SF Airlines became the first company in the industry to pass the CCAR-121-R4 for supplemental operations. They also flew their first Boeing 737-300F in 2011. SF Airlines passed the International Region Supplemental Operation Assessment and became qualified to operate international routes.[4]

In 2012, SF Airlines operated its first Boeing 737-400F.[5]

In October 2014 Boeing announced that an undisclosed number of Boeing 767-300ER will be converted by Boeing to a Freighter as part of the proven BCF Program for Fleet Expansion by SF Airlines with an entry into service in 2015 of the first aircraft.
