Jettainer adds Leipzig to its ULD network


Leipzig/Halle Airport and Jettainer have added the hub to its JettLease network, so the Lufthansa Cargo subsidiary’s unit load devices will be available from Germany’s second largest airport.

The agreement was signed at the Air Cargo China tradeshow in Shanghai on 15 June, and adds to the JettLease hubs of Frankfurt, Chicago and Hong Kong.

Jettainer chief executive officer, Carsten Hernig says: “Leipzig/Halle Airport complements our existing network of JettLease stations in an ideal manner.

“With the expansion, we are responding to the growing demand for flexible loading equipment solutions at times of peak demand or for ad hoc operations.”

Leipzig/Halle operator, Mitteldeutsche Flughafen special representative of the board air cargo, Bettina Ganghofer says: “The JettLease station is an asset for our air freight hub.”

She adds: “Our airline customers will profit from the immediate availability of a range of both short-notice and flexible loading equipment solutions.”
