AAR’s Nordisk Aviation Products to Customize 2,000 Air Cargo Containers to Match Air New Zealand’s Livery
Lightweight containers support airline’s branding and save fuel costs
NORWAY — Nordisk Aviation Products announces it has received orders for more than 2,000 Nordisk air cargo containers, whereof 1,200 are Nordisk UltraLite AKEs (LD3) from Air New Zealand, and will customize each one to match the iconic silver fern livery on the airline’s aircraft.
Nordisk has started delivery of the grey and black containers, with completion due by the end of 2015. Nordisk containers are among the lightest-weight in the industry and will significantly reduce the airline’s fuel costs and environmental emissions.
Air New Zealand is the official airline of the New Zealand All Blacks, current holder of the IRB Rugby World Cup.
“We are excited to be selected to supply Air New Zealand’s first customized air cargo containers,” said Boon Yang Sim, Nordisk's Vice President of Sales and Business Development, Asia Pacific and the People’s Republic of China. “A critical component of Nordisk’s success has been a willingness to provide customized product solutions that support our customers’ objectives. We are especially pleased to know that our containers will be used by the New Zealand All Blacks when they travel to England in a year’s time to defend their title.”
