Jettainer signs the perfect deal with Plus Ultra

Lufthansa’s outsourced ULD arm, Jettainer, is taking over the management of pallets and containers for new Spanish airline Plus Ultra Líneas Aéreas.
The carrier operates two Airbus A340-300 aircraft on regular routes between Madrid and Lima, Peru, and Santo Domingo in the Dominican Republic and is planning a fleet expansion and new destinations including Panama, Costa Rica, Cuba and Bangkok.  
To kick off the collaboration, Jettainer is supplying Plus Ultra with about 150 AKE containers complete with PMC type pallets.
Jettainer sales director, Thorsten Riekert, said that he was keen to work with growing airlines from their inception: “We want to develop our business with aspiring airlines and grow with them. A solid and long-term partnership is of great importance to us.”
The carrier’s vice president of ground operations, Olaf Schmidt, added that outsourcing ULD acquisition, management and maintenance would give “considerably more efficiency than if we had taken it on ourselves.” It would also free resources that can be used for further growth, he added.
