WestJet renews ULD partnership with Jettainer


WestJet has renewed its ULD management partnership with Jettainer for another five-years, extending the contract two years before expiring.

The Canadian airline has grown significantly since the partnership started in 2015, including taking delivery of the first of 10 Boeing 787-9 Dreamliners in January.

The number of containers and pallets to be controlled has been increased from around 350 to 2,000 units.

Carsten Hernig, managing director of Jettainer says: “We are very pleased with WestJet’s confidence in our services. The premature extension of the contract explicitly expresses this and is an incentive for us to continue to convince through our best service in the future.”

Heidi Macenzie, director of cargo at WestJet Airlines says: “The early renewal of our contract is proof of the good partnership we have enjoyed with Jettainer over the past four years. We see the ULD specialist as an ideal partner to continue our growth course.”
