Air Transat and Unilode Aviation Solutions have extended their ULD management partnership until 2026. 

Under the terms of the renewed agreement, Unilode continues to supply, manage, digitalise and repair Air Transat’s lightweight containers and pallets in a pooled ULD management model.  

Air Transat operates scheduled and charter flights, currently serving 45 destinations in 27 countries with a fleet of 31 aircraft including 12 widebody aircraft. Unilode has managed Air Transat’s ULDs since 2003. 

Sergio Matos, vice president, air operations, Air Transat, said: “We have built a strong partnership with Unilode over the years. We value their flexibility, reliability and customer focus that enables us to concentrate on our core business of flying passengers.

“Unilode’s ULD pooling model efficiently supports the changes to our schedule and network while reducing our costs and contributing to our sustainability efforts. We foresee a strong recovery, are developing our network and growing our fleet.

“We count on Unilode’s ULD solutions to support our growth and are pleased to continue working with a strategic partner that shares Air Transat’s values and commitment to excellence.”

Ross Marino, chief executive, Unilode, said: “Air Transat has been our valued customer for almost 20 years, and we are proud to be able to continue providing our ULD management solutions to one of our most loyal customers.

“The renewal of our agreement demonstrates that both parties have been pleased with our partnership and are committed to further enhancing our relationship.

“Air Transat has an ambitious sustainability strategy and Unilode’s ULD pooling benefits, lightweight containers and digital ULDs help achieve its goals. We thank Air Transat for their trust in Unilode and look forward to our continued successful partnership.”

In April, Unilode announced it had reached 100,000 digital unit load devices (ULDs) live in its outsourced container and pallet fleet, supporting 40 ULD management customers.
