Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, 2023-Oct-03 — /Travel PR News/ — Teleport, the market leader for air logistics in Southeast Asia, and SF Airlines, China’s largest air cargo carrier by fleet, have signed a bilateral interline partnership to leverage on each other’s extensive air network to better serve their respective customers – Teleport brings to the table deep logistics access into Southeast Asia, and SF Airlines the largest express network within China and outbound into European and North American markets.

This will help us better serve our customers needs, deepen our end-to-end capabilities, and ramp up our ability to scale our business to better serve the region.”
“This collaboration reflects our relentless commitment to revolutionise air logistics in Southeast Asia and beyond – to provide our customers with a faster, more affordable, and uncomplicated go-to choice to move things across Southeast Asia, and now globally.”
SF Airlines operates a formidable fleet of 84 freighters serving 90 global destinations, both present and past. Their international network includes destinations in Europe, the United States, the Middle East, and Southeast Asia, among others.
Li Sheng, Chairman of SF Airlines, added, “We’re delighted to partner with Teleport, a market leader in the Southeast Asia region.
