With a fleet of over 100 narrowbody aircraft (a mix of Airbus A320 family and Boeing 737 Next Generation types), Shenzhen Airlines is the fourth largest domestic carrier in the Chinese market with around 7% of seat capacity and flights.[3]

The carrier operates a total of 137 domestic airport-pairs involving 58 Chinese airports, plus nine international routes. In 2010, the airline carried 16.5 million passengers, up 9% on the previous year.[3]
