Aer Lingus signs master leaset with CSafe

Dublin, Ireland: Aer Lingus Cargo, which offers airport to airport cold chain transport services to and from  Ireland and the US, has signed a master lease agreement with CSafe, manufacturer of the only FAA approved active temperature-controlled RKN cargo container. This agreement expands the Aer Lingus AerCool service offering to customers requiring strict temperature management during transport.

Peter O’Neill, director of cargo, Aer Lingus said “Aer Lingus Cargo and CSafe have worked closely to gain operating approval from the Irish Aviation Authority and to ensure that the deployment of the units is supported by fully trained staff throughout the network. The CSafe RKN significantly enhances our AerCool service offering and the availability of the unit throughout our network will ensure our customers’ temperature controlled transport requirements can be met at very short notice. The units are available on a trip basis on all our flights linking, Dublin, Shannon, New York, Chicago, Boston and Orlando.”

Brian Kohr, president of CSafe said, “Aer Lingus Cargo offers a unique solution for customers shipping temperature-sensitive healthcare products between important production and distribution sites located in Ireland and the U.S. The pairing of Aer Lingus and CSafe will serve to significantly expand temperature-sensitive air carrier transportation options for our mutual customers within a critical corridor which has been historically underserved.”

CSafe continues to grow to meet the needs of their customers including new partnerships with major global airlines, forwarders and specialty couriers; additions to their global service network; and by the ongoing expansion to their fleet of containers. The AcuTemp RKN is the first and only active controlled air container with FAA, EASA, Transport Canada, Hong Kong CAD, Irish Aviation Authority IAA and Israel CAA approvals.
