Jettainer and Avianca Cargo have entered into a five-year agreement for pallet management and maintenance services.

Under the terms of the contract, the Colombian airline, which has its headquarters in Bogota, will receive different pallet types from Jettainer to meet the needs of its growing fleet.

With more than 200 freighter flights per week, Avianca Cargo serves more than 65 destinations in the Americas and Europe. The Colombian cargo airline specialises in transporting cut flowers from Latin America to North America. In the 2022 Valentine's Day season alone, the carrier transported more than 16,000 tonnes of flowers. With a fleet of 11 freighter aircraft made up of A330-F, B767, and A300F, Avianca Cargo is considered one of the most experienced airlines in the Latin American air freight industry.

Jettainer will provide Avianca Cargo with all the pallets required by its fleet. The unit load device (ULD) specialist will manage, maintain, and repair all units with a dedicated team out of Dallas, Texas.

“In Avianca Cargo, we are committed to continually strengthening our operation. We are focused on efficiency, providing our customers with reliable, agile, and synchronised operations. Having Jettainer as a partner reaffirms our dedication to deliver the best service to our customers within the industry’s highest standards,” said Juan Cruz Correa, COO at Avianca Cargo.

With the contract win, Jettainer continues to strengthen its position in the Americas. For the past eight years, the ULD services specialist, a wholly owned subsidiary of Lufthansa Cargo, has operated its own entity in the Americas, Jettainer Americas.
