Unilode Aviation Solutions opening new facility in Singapore

Unilode Aviation Solutions has moved its unit load device (ULD) and galley cart repair centre in Singapore into a larger facility near the Changi Airfreight Centre.

The repair station has a 800 m2 warehouse, 250 m2 of office space and an extensive outside storage area.

It holds the certification of the Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore, allowing it to carry out repairs for airlines based in Singapore, Australia, Hong Kong and the USA, as well as European Aviation Safety Agency certification.

The station’s repair capability includes all certified ULDs such as large structural main deck units, containers, pallets and horse stalls, and inflight food service equipment.

In addition to the centre’s main customer, Singapore Airlines Cargo, the increased capacity enables the provision of ULD and galley cart maintenance and repair services to other customers as well.

Unilode chief executive officer, Benoît Dumont says: “In addition to the new facility in Singapore we are looking at establishing a presence at a number of strategic hubs in the region. Unilode’s ULD and galley cart capabilities and expertise play an important part in airlines’ decision to outsource their ULD management and repair operations to Unilode.”

“Singapore Airlines Cargo and Cathay Pacific Airways are our largest customers in Asia Pacific and we expect to grow our customer base with other major carriers next year.”
