Chinese cargo carrier SF Airlines inducted a Boeing 737 Classic into Boeing Shanghai Aviation Services facilities as part of a new maintenance contract covering its 737 and 767-300 freighters.
The parties didn’t release the contract value, duration or number of aircraft covered, but did say this is the first MRO contract between the parties and that more airplanes will arrive on a nose-to-tail basis at the MRO’s Shanghai Pudong International Airport facility.
The length of its C check varies depending on the requested work package, but on average, each maintenance check will take 15-20 days, says Dermot Swan, Boeing Shanghai CEO.
SF Airlines, established in 2009 in Shenzhen, operates 39 aircraft including the 737s, 767s and 757s. The all-cargo carrier’s 757s “are not covered by this contract,” says Swan.
