Jettainer is taking over the supervision and maintenance of containers and pallets for Equatorial Congo Airlines (ECAir). Headquartered in Brazzaville, the capital of the Republic of the Congo, the airline is Jettainer’s first client on the African continent.

“We operate on a global scale and still see high potential for further growth, especially in the Asian market. The recent developments show that airlines around the world are convinced by our innovative complete service for ULDs,” says Carsten Hernig, managing director of Jettainer GmbH. Currently, Jettainer manages more than 85,000 ULDs for 16 clients.

The Congolese airline has decided to outsource the management and maintenance of ULDs to Jettainer as soon as they start their operation of flights using wide-body aircrafts. The airline is thereby following a trend, confirms Don Jacobs, sales director at Jettainer GmbH: “In order to cover the ULD demand, airlines – especially smaller airlines and airlines extending into wide-body operations – increasingly rely on external specialists. This provides additional opportunities. We are expecting to continue our growth with new clients from various regions and several business models in the coming year.”
