In 2019, the year of SF Airlines’ 10th anniversary, the number of all-cargo aircraft of SF Airlines reached to nearly 60, serving more than 60 cities and areas on this planet. This annual “Double 11” express logistics peak not only testified SF Airlines’ service quality, but also drove the improvement of SF Airlines’ operation capacity. To respond to this “big exam”, each supporting organization of SF Airlines conducted targeted ability enhancement and centralized drills, selected suitable aircraft models based on factors like estimated shipment volume, air route features and shipment composition, made full use of the intelligent management system to control operation risks and improve air-ground connection efficiency, and strengthened team cohesion through cultural mobilization so as to save no efforts in guaranteeing stable and highly efficient operation of flights during the peak time and helping to deliver every shipment of “Double 11” on time.


As estimated by the State Post Bureau, the post and express business volume in the whole industry during the “Double 11” period might reach 2.8 billion shipments. This number reflects a huge consumption potential and broad space of development for air courier services. The “Double 11” peak has passed, but the “Double 12” and Spring Festival logistics peak seasons are on the way. On the occasion of SF Airlines’ 10th anniversary when business peaks come one after another and “big exams” are unceasing, SF Airlines will continue to remain under arms to pick up the “relay baton” from the front end and continue to improve the service quality on air transportation so as to provide customers with competitive aviation guarantee.
