Coronavirus Turkish Cargo

Turkish Cargo has signed a three-year deal with Unilode Aviation Solutions for maintenance and repair of the airline’s unit load device fleet.

As part of the agreement, Unilode will repair Turkish Cargo’s standard and heavy-duty pallet nets, cargo and special containers at 22 locations in Unilode’s EASA and FAA-certified repair network in Europe, the Middle East, Asia, and the Americas.

“We are pleased to join forces with Unilode Aviation Solutions for worldwide ULD repair. This cooperation will be providing operational sustainability, allowing high availability and better utilisation of assets for Turkish Cargo in terms of repair management,” said Turkish Airline’s SVP of cargo operations Vural Ursavas.

“Working with Unilode at multiple locations will be ensuring consistent quality and repair compliance across our network, and we look forward to carrying out constructive partnership for an improved performance and efficiency.”

Unilode Aviation Solutions’ chief commercial officer and managing director of MRO Solutions Marc Groenewegen added: “Turkish Cargo’s worldwide destinations overlap with several repair stations owned and operated by Unilode that makes it possible to repair ULDs where the damage occurs to significantly reduce ULD repositioning needs, fuel burn and CO2emissions.

“ULD fleet availability, especially in peak seasons, is crucial for airlines’ operations, and we are committed to helping Turkish Cargo increase its asset utilisation through quick repair turnaround times in our global MRO network.”
