Jul 20, 2017: Boeing Shanghai, a joint venture between Boeing, Shanghai Airport Authorities and China Eastern Airlines has signed a maintenance contract with Chinese-based SF Airlines Co. Ltd (SF Airlines) for its Boeing Classic 737 and 767-300 freighters.
"SF Airlines' long-term development strategy requires the highest world standard aircraft maintenance services to ensure safety and on-time performance. We truly believe that Boeing Shanghai is our best choice and our cooperation will be productive and mutually beneficial," expressed by SF Airlines.
The first airplane is already going through a C-check in Boeing Shanghai’s facilities at Shanghai Pudong International Airport and more airplanes will follow on a nose-to-tail basis. A C-check is a broad check of the airplane's systems and components that can require several days to perform.
“The contract is a testimonial for Boeing Shanghai’s reputation in the Chinese cargo market and we appreciate SF Airlines’ trust in our services,” said Dermot Swan, CEO of Boeing Shanghai. “Boeing Shanghai’s commitment to providing flexible maintenance services with exceptional value and high quality to SF Airlines will support its domestic and international business expansion. We look forward to a long-term rewarding partnership with them.”
