AAR Landing Gear inks new deal with Air Nostrum
Sept. 17, 2014, Miami, Fla. - AAR has announced an agreement with Air Nostrum, based in Valencia, Spain, to overhaul landing gear on its CRJ900 aircraft fleet. The contract builds upon AAR’s existing relationship and experience servicing landing gear on the airline’s entire fleet of CRJ200s over the past seven years. AAR is performing the work at its landing gear repair station in Miami.
This agreement expands AAR’s global maintenance, repair and overhaul capabilities on regional jets. Last month, the company signed an agreement with Utah-based SkyWest Airlines to overhaul landing gear on its fleet of 40 Embraer 175 commercial passenger jets.
“AAR has a strong partner in Air Nostrum and this new contract demonstrates the customer confidence and loyalty we strive to earn every day,” said Pastor Lopez, AAR’s Vice President of Aircraft Components and Landing Gear Services. “Our full-service Miami facility aims to consistently deliver quality results to Air Nostrum, one of the largest regional airlines in Europe.”
