AeroUnion has outsourced ULD management to Jettainer, which will operate its fleet of more than 800 units.

The Mexican cargo airline signed the deal with Jettainer at the TIACA Air Cargo Forum in Miami, giving responsibility for positioning and managing, maintaining and repairing the units to Jettainer.

The contract will last 5 years and Jettainer will carry out fleet analysis in order to exploit potential for optimisation and save costs.

Alonso Haro, CEO of AeroUnion, says, “With Jettainer, we have found a partner who guarantees us 100 percent and also highly efficient ULD availability. At the same time, it was important to us that a high understanding of the cargo business and the necessary flexibility and customer orientation be brought in, which is fully present at Jettainer.”

Shailendar Kothari, Managing Director of Jettainer Americas, adds, “AeroUnion adds another ambitious cargo airline to our customer portfolio in the Americas. The region is an important growth market for us, where we want to further expand our leading role. We are very much looking forward to supporting the airline on its growth path with innovative ULD services.”

The Mexico City-based airport operates a fleet of 3 Airbus A300s and 2 Boeing 767-200s serving 21 destinations in the US and Latin America.
