China Southern B747-400F @ORD?

Thu Jul 12, 2001 7:54 am

I read an article today from SchedNet ( stating that China Southern Airlines has three flights per week B747-400F freighter service from Shenzhen International Airport in Southern China to ORD, with return service to Shanghai before returning to Shenzhen. Does anyone know who operates this flight for them. Is it possibly an Atlas Air wetlease?

Thanks, CX flyboy. I thought this was the case. I'll keep an eye out for it at ORD.

They have two 5Y 744F's on the route. Next year you will see two 744F's in full CZ colours as they will receive their own aircraft.
