KLM/Air France has ordered new AAP containers to expand its ULD fleet. AAP containers already form a large part of this fleet, but they were due for replacement.
The benefits of an AAP container
The AAP is a lower deck container that is compatible with most aircraft types. It’s a fairly standard, light and robust container, with a cover/net door and a few customised features. The sheet material is a lightweight aluminium composite panel with aluminium surfaces and a polypropylene core. In addition, the cover door can be locked to prevent unauthorised access.
There are two versions of the AAP container, one of which comes with a GOH (garment on hanger) roof profile for the easy handling of textiles.
