Nordisk begins LD3 delivery to Korean Air


AAR’s Nordisk Aviation Products has started delivery of 400 Nordisk AluLite AKE air cargo containers to Korean Air.

The Nordisk AluLite AKE weighs 65kg and is the lightest-weight full-aluminium airfreight LD3 container in the industry, according to Nordisk.

“Korean Air continues to favour aluminium because of its simplicity in maintenance and greater recycling benefits. With the Nordisk AluLite, Korean Air also gets the lightest full aluminium AKE container available,” says Boon Yang Sim, Nordisk’s VP of sales and business development, Asia Pacific and the People’s Republic of China.

Nordisk is the leading supplier of air cargo containers and pallets in the industry. With more than 700,000 ULDs sold over 40 years, Nordisk ULDs are used by virtually every airline operating wide-body aircraft.
