Originally it operated smaller aircraft, flying courier freight and small cargo for DHL Express (hence the Cargo name) and other companies contracted to fly for FedEx.
After starting to operate passenger flights, Star Air decided to move out of the smaller aircraft and to begin operating the Boeing 737, and started with their first 737-200 aircraft in 2007. Star Air has begun negotiating with aircraft leasing companies to lease in the newer generation 737-300 and 737-500 aircraft, which will begin to replace the 737-200s over a two-year period.
