Etihad Airways renews contract with Jettainer

Posted 9 May 2017 · Add Comment

Etihad Airways and Jettainer are extending their cooperation until 2021. The leading international service partner for outsourced ULD management will continue to manage and maintain the container fleet of the United Arab Emirates' national airline during the next five years.

The introduction of intelligent containers, so-called smart ULDs, is also planned for this time frame. Smart ULDs autonomously inform about the containers’ position, temperature or maintenance status.

David Kerr, senior vice president Etihad Airways, said: “Etihad Cargo is delighted to continue our relationship with Jettainer, which has proved to be a great partner over the past five years. The renewal of our agreement is testament to our strong collaboration, and will ensure our customers continue to enjoy a consistent delivery of products and services.”

“The cooperation with Etihad Cargo has turned Abu Dhabi into one of our most important hubs. The trust we’ve now been given is a confirmation of our work and an incentive to continue to convince through our best service in the future,” said Carsten Hernig, Managing Director, Jettainer. “Furthermore, Etihad Cargo, as an innovative and growing airline, is an ideal partner to go live with our smart ULDs.”

Etihad Cargo will be Jettainer’s first customer for the smart containers, which are fitted with GPS for constant traceability, can autonomously measure changes in temperature, shocks and other external influences, as well as give status updates. This enhances maintenance and management processes.
