Jettainer lands first African contract

ULD logistics management company Jettainer has secured a supervision and maintenance contract with Equatorial Congo Airlines (ECAir), its first client on the African continent.
The Brazzaville-headquartered airline has decided to outsource the management and maintenance of ULDs and pallets to Jettainer as soon as the Congolese carrier starts operating wide-body aircraft.
“We operate on a global scale and still see high potential for further growth, especially in the Asian market. The recent developments show that airlines around the world are convinced by our innovative complete service for ULDs,” said Carsten Hernig, managing director of Jettainer, the Lufthansa Cargo subsidiary.
Jettainer manages more than 85,000 ULDs for 16 clients with an international network of locations, which ECAir will be able to leverage.
Don Jacobs, sales director at Jettainer, said: “In order to cover the ULD demand, airlines – especially smaller airlines and airlines extending into wide-body operations – increasingly rely on external specialists. This provides additional opportunities.
"We are expecting to continue our growth with new clients from various regions and several business models in the coming year.”
