Jettainer has signed a deal with Brussels Airlines to control and maintain its fleet of unit load devices from the spring of 2017.

Jettainer will look after a fleet of about 1,000 ULDs over the next five years and it will set up a ULD controller at Brussels Airport. The deal was signed on 28 October, on the final day of The International Air Cargo Association Air Cargo Forum in Paris.

Brussels Airlines cargo operations manager, Pieter Huyghens says: “Thanks to the new partnership with the world’s leading ULD specialist, we’ll now be provided with innovative and modern containers and pallets even more efficiently. This does not only represent financial savings, but it also supports our efforts to offer more efficient air services and to reduce our ecological footprint.”

Jettainer sales director, Thorsten Riekert says: “We’re continuing to expand our customer portfolio with Brussels Airlines and are therefore pressing ahead with our growth course. Our excellent customer services and unique innovative solutions in ULD management are clearly making themselves felt in the market place.”

“The special features of Jettainer services, like our ground handling agents and ongoing developments in our own JettWare software, are generating significant value added and customers are clearly recognising this.”
