Telair International introduced the world’s first cargo loading system, allowing the lower deck of a narrow-body aircraft to be quickly converted for different cargo requirements. The new system will have pre-assembled floor modules, easily reconfigured within a few hours to accommodate full bulk or containerized cargo loading-depending on the type of freight that needs to be loaded and transported.
As of now, Lufthansa Group has ordered more than 100 systems, to be installed on new A320/A321neo aircraft over the next six years beginning in the second quarter of 2020.
“This intelligent solution will help our customers optimize the performance of their fleets and reduce operation costs throughout the life cycle,” said Marko Enderlein, CEO of Telair International. “The Modular cargo Loading System is the latest innovative from Telair and demonstrates our expertise and world leading position in cargo handling systems.”
A certified MRO can carry out the post-delivery aircraft modifications, all conversions, and installation steps.
“Our engineers have been pushing the idea of a modular and reconfigurable cargo system for quite some time,” said Enderlein. “As the aerospace market continue to grow strongly, and airlines are being increasingly challenged to be flexible to varied loads, the time had come to develop the Modular Cargo Loading System. Now that we have it, we are certain it will be a difference maker in the world cargo loading.”
