Partnership to continue to 2027
Unilode Aviation Solutions, a specialist for outsourced unit load device (ULD) management, repair and digital services, and Air Asia X, a medium- to long-haul airline, are extending their full-service ULD management partnership until 2027.
Air Asia X has been a Unilode ULD management customer since 2009 and the partnership has been renewed twice in the past 14 years. Unilode supplies a digitised ULD fleet to AirAsia X for its current fleet of 14 Airbus A330 aircraft.
Air Asia X will acquire three more widebody aircraft by the end of this year and plans to grow further over the next few years. It currently flies to 19 destinations and the ULD repairs are carried out in Unilode’s global MRO network, mainly located in the Asia-Pacific region, to reduce turnaround times and increase asset availability.
