747-400F For Air China

Sat Oct 25, 2003 3:48 am

World Airline Fleets reports that SIA has leased out B747-412F 9V-SFC to Air China. The aircraft has been re-registered B-2409 a few weeks ago.

Other unreported news is that South African has returned its first 747-300 to the lessor after receiving their 4th A340-600. The aircraft in question is ZS-SKB, a former Swissair aircraft built 1983.

Air China currently has B 742Fs and there is massive cargo potential to exploit out of CHINA in the future so Air China better seriously start leasing in or buying many B 747Fs as China Southern has already stated that it wants 10 B 744Fs to add to its existing fleet of 2-3 B 74Fs.

And of cause we didn´t have to wait too long to see it here. Hopefully Air China orders some more of them soon (although their livery is one of the less attractive).
