China Southern to form Boeing 777F cargo unit

China Southern Airlines has applied to the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) for approval to establish a cargo subsidiary.

To be based in Guangzhou, the new carrier, known as China Southern Airlines Cargo, will be wholly owned by China Southern. Neither the CAAC nor China Southern gave any indication of when the new carrier will commence operations.

It will operate Boeing 777 freighters — presumed to be transferred from China Southern’s existing freighter fleet — on domestic and international cargo flights.
