AAR’s Nordisk Aviation Products subsidiary has
begun delivery of more than 2,600 lightweight air-cargo containers
to Turkish Airlines.
Nordisk’s containers, also known as Unit Load
Devices, or ULDs, are used by commercial airlines to store and
transport cargo and luggage.
“Nordisk offers the widest range of ULDs in the
industry and has been supporting Turkish Airlines with air-cargo
containers and pallets since 1978. We are very pleased to provide products, services and solutions that lower their total cost of
ULD ownership, while ensuring safe and reliable cargo handling for
their customers,” said Peter Grau, Nordisk's Vice President of
Sales — Europe, Middle East and Africa.
The contract for
2,600 containers continues Turkish Airlines’ long-term commitment
to improve fuel efficiency through lighter-weight ULDs. In 2013,
Nordisk supplied close to 2,000 lightweight air-cargo pallets to
Turkish Airlines for its wide-body fleet that includes B777, A330
and A340 aircraft.
