Johannesburg - SA Airways (SAA) Cargo on Thursday welcomed the delivery of a new Boeing 737-400 cargo aircraft into its fleet.

"This can only mean good news for our customers as the bigger aircraft will provide them with extra capacity on key routes," SAA cargo general manager Tleli Makhetha said in a statement.

The 737-400 plane can carry between 20 and 22 tons on 10 pallets.

A Boeing 737-300 will replace the airline's current 737-200 and delivery is scheduled for July.

This means SAA cargo will have a fleet of three 737-300s and one 737-400.

Makhetha said these new cargo planes would replace the "ageing fleet" and bring stability to SAA cargo schedule.

"We are excited about business opportunities and will continue to ensure that we provide our customers with reliable connectivity to all key markets in the region."

New African routes will be introduced soon.
