Qatar Airways awards ULD and galley equipment maintenance contract to CHEP Aerospace Solutions

September 20, 2012

Qatar Airways has appointed CHEP Aerospace Solutions to maintain and repair its worldwide fleet of Unit Load Devices (ULDs) and galley cart equipment under a five-year contract.

CHEP will use its global network of 50 repair stations to maintain Qatar Airways' fleet of more than 24,000 ULDs and galley carts, and will expand this network by opening a repair location in Doha.

CHEP Aerospace Solutions President, Dr Ludwig Bertsch, said: "Qatar Airways is a world leader in the aviation industry and we are delighted to have them as one of our customers. Outsourcing the repair and maintenance of non-flight-critical activities, such as ULD and galley cart pooling and maintenance, is becoming ever more popular. We believe CHEP is best positioned to meet this need in the industry."
