Jettainer to Manage
ULDs for T'way Air
South Korean airline T'way Air has
chosen Jettainer to provide unit load

A330 aircraft.
T'way Air is on a growth trajectory.
The low-cost carrier will add three
leased widebody Airbus A330-300 aircraft

airline with a customized ULD fleet
and will manage the steering, maintenance
and repair of all units.
" We are putting our ULD management
services in the best hands by
opting for Jettainer's many years of
experience and professional services.
As we grow our fleet now and in the
future, we are deliberately embracing
sustainable and cost-efficient ULD
solutions so this partnership is an
excellent fit with our constant efforts
to increase innovation, cut costs, and
enhance efficiency, " remarked Sungsup
Park, chief cargo external affairs
director at T'way Air.
" We are active all over the globe and
recognize that the Asian market offers
significant potential to us, as aviation
will continue to grow there in the
years ahead. Outsourcing ULD services
is an especially attractive alternative
for expanding airlines like T´way Air as
efficient management cuts costs and
reduces CO2 emissions, " said Thorsten
Riekert, Jettainer's chief sales officer.
