Oman Air Cargo moves forward with Jettainer for ULD management

Posted 5 October 2017 · Add Comment

Oman Air Cargo signed a five year ULD (Unit Load Device) outsourcing contract with Jettainer.

According to the agreement, Jettainer will be granted Oman Air Cargo’s ULD management effective 5 October 2017.

With Oman Air’s endeavor to “become the best”, and its continuing commitment to a lower environmental footprint, Oman Air Cargo will be utilizing lightweight ULDs, constructed of carbon fibre as well as partly recycled composite materials. This significant change will result in the reduction of CO2 emissions, improved payload, as well as an increase in fuel efficiency.

Jettainer’s highly efficient management solutions allow to reduce the existing container fleet of Oman Air by about 20 percent to 1,200 units. Among the ULDs used so far were still 600 aluminum AKE containers. These are replaced by state-of-the-art environmentally friendly lightweight AKEs. Another 200 lightweight containers will be added to the Oman fleet as part of the airlines expansion in the near future.

“In line with our strategy to ’become the best’, and strengthen our status as a leading international cargo carrier, we are excited to work with an industry leader such as Jettainer in order to offer our clients the best possible service in line with leading industry standards. Our agreement with Jettainer comes at a time of excellent growth and modernization of the cargo division, as we continue forward with our aggressive growth plan. We are confident Jettainer is a partner that shares our positive outlook and offers us the right services and technology to further improve our offerings, “said Mohammed Al Musafir, Senior Vice President Commercial Cargo, during the signing ceremony at the cargo handling facility at its hub at Muscat International Airport.

“We look forward to work with Oman Air, a very successful and rapidly growing global airline from the Middle East. We are proud that we are able to stand out from our competitors with our smart solution, which is the combination of Jettainer’s experts, technology and ULD hardware”, says Carsten Hernig, Managing Director of Jettainer GmbH.

“With this cooperation, we continue to expand our presence in the strategically important Gulf region. This is an enormous dynamic market, which enables us to proceed with our course of growth in the long term”, said Martin Kraemer, Head of Marketing and PR at Jettainer, after the ceremony at Muscat.

A team of Jettainer ULD controllers is currently based at Oman Air Cargo's operations center in Muscat. System rollout, trainings and operational transfers have been completed by a joint project team. All ULDs are maintained by Jettainer at the Muscat International Airport and in Jettainer’s global repair network.
