Position your empty containers where you need them most
Designed to address the global imbalance in ULD stocks and to help ULD fleet managers optimise the efficiency of their fleets, our collapsible AAY ULD is the first of its kind to be certified by a civil aviation authority.
This unique, main-deck AAY ULD can be set up and folded down in seconds, yet it has the same capacity as a standard AAY. When collapsed, it can be stacked, shipped and stored in the most space-efficient way possible.
The collapsible AAY has a range of standard features that support industry-wide efforts to improve operational efficiencies and introduce sustainability practices.
Foldable and stackable When collapsed, can be stacked up to six high in a narrow-bodied plane’s hold and up to eight high in a shipping container for cost-effective repositioning
Strong and resilient When full, offers the same level of cargo protection as the standard version during flight and is certified to the same high air-worthiness standards
Easy to operate It takes just two people and one minute to set up and fold down; parts are as lightweight as possible and there is no need for tools
Safe to operate All parts lock into place automatically with visible signs and an audible click to ensure that each panel is properly secured
Practical and versatile It fits the main deck of many types of aircraft; offers an optimal fit for six types of aircraft and a non-optimal fit for seven others

It is quick and safe to fold the collapsible AAY. All you have to do is release the stud fittings and locks, then fold the panels inwards, making sure the cover and straps are tucked in neatly. Watch this instruction video to see how easy it is.
When folded, the collapsible AAY can be stacked up to four high on the main deck of an A320, B757 and B737, up to six high on the lower deck of a B747, and up to eight high in a regular 40ft shipping container.
