SF Airlines commences freighter service on Shenzhen-Delhi route

Proffering twice-a-week service, China-based cargo airline SF Airlines has added second cargo service to India as it commenced services on the Shenzhen-Delhi route on October 17, 2019. The service is operated with the carrier’s B747-400 aircraft, that offers a maximum payload of 110 tonnes. Cargoes exported are mainly consumer electronics and industrial equipment, and cargoes imported are mainly e-commerce parcels and general cargoes.
Reports suggest that the Indian e-commerce market has taken a leap forward since the development in 2005. By 2018, the transactions have amounted to over USD19.5 billion, with mobile phone products as one of the main drivers, said the airline through a statement. As the e-commerce industry booms and the trade flows are on the rise, the demands for cross-border aviation logistics between the two places are emerging.
