AAR’s Nordisk partners with Airbus to develop AMV main deck cargo container
AAR’s Nordisk Aviation Products, in partnership with Airbus, has developed an AMV main deck cargo container exclusively for the A330-200F, A300-600 and A310-300 converted freighter. Hong Kong Airlines recently purchased the customized unit devices (ULDs) for its fleet of Airbus 330-200F aircraft. The AMV accommodates side-by-side positioning, allowing maximum use of space. The AMV has a base dimension of 96-by-125 inches and is contoured to match the fuselage sidewalls. Previously, the only way to maximize air freight capacity was to use pallets and build up the load to match the contour of the aircraft. With the new AMV containers, cargo build-up will be faster and easier.
