Air Tahiti Nui extends ULD partnership with Unilode
14 / 09 / 2023
Unilode Aviation Solutions and Air Tahiti Nui, the flag carrier of French Polynesia, have extended their ULD management partnership until 2029.
Air Tahiti Nui operates four Boeing 787-9 aircraft, serving destinations in France, New Zealand and the US from its hub in Tahiti.
Unilode has been providing full-service ULD management solutions to Air Tahiti Nui since 2015 and previously transitioned the airline’s ULD fleet to digitised ULDs that are designed to be more durable, efficient and lightweight.
“Air Tahiti benefits from Unilode’s ULD pooling synergies, digital solutions and maintenance and repair network that overlaps at all of its overseas destinations,” said the ULD company.
Raymond Topin, Air Tahiti Nui executive vice president operation, said: “We appreciate the benefits of ULD pooling, especially the repositioning, synergy and fuel saving opportunities, and the availability of repair stations in our network.
“As Air Tahiti Nui’s business has regained momentum and we expanded our horizons with new routes, we have been able to focus on our business without worrying about ULDs and are pleased with the extension of our ULD management partnership with Unilode.”
Unilode chief executive Ross Marino said: “We place great value on customer retention, so we are delighted to extend our partnership with Air Tahiti Nui. Unilode’s pooling benefits and our dedicated customer success staff that provide 24/7 management support to Air Tahiti Nui has played a key role in enabling the renewal of our agreement.”
