The Spanish airline Plus Ultra Líneas Aéreas has extended its contract with Jettainer for a further five years
By outsourcing its ULDs (Unit Load Devices) it hopes that Jettainer’s customised services will support the growth of the young airline, which operates a network of routes between Madrid and South America.
“A solid and long partnership is important to us, even more in times of crisis. We stand at Plus Ultra’s side with Jettainer’s efficient ULD management services and leading IT solutions,” said Jettainer’s managing director, Thomas Sonntag.
The partnership dates back to 2016, during which Plus Ultra has added a third and fourth Airbus A340 to its fleet and expanded its network.
The company says that Jettainer has proven its expertise in ULD management to Plus Ultra particularly since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic. Its global network and many years of experience in unit load device management ensure that ULDs are available at all locations.
The A340 specialist will remain able to offer cargo space in wide-body aircraft to a full extent, meeting growing demand for air freight during the pandemic.
“The fact that Jettainer is procuring, managing and maintaining ULDs for us creates efficient infrastructure on the ground that we could not create better ourselves. We can always count on our partner, including during the pandemic. The partnership with Jettainer continues to pave the way for our airline’s expansion in the future, despite the challenges associated with the coronavirus,” added Plus Ultra Líneas Aéreas’ CEO, Roberto Roselli.
The airline first took to the skies in 2016. With four Airbus A340 long-haul aircraft, Plus Ultra also runs flights to South America from Madrid and Tenerife. It has scheduled services to Lima, Caracas, Quito, and Guayaquil. Plus Ultra also specialises in charter flights and ACMI charter flights where it provides its aircraft and crew for other airlines to use in their own name.
