AAR has confirmed it will close its MRO facility in Hot Springs, Arkansas as part of its effort to improve efficiency and consolidate operations.

The US MRO provider cited overcapacity for regional aircraft repair in North America as the reason behind its decision to close the 5,000m² hanger next month.

It plans to move two of the site’s heavy maintenance lines to a larger facility in Oklahoma City. AAR also said 119 of the Arkansas facility's staff will be offered new roles in Oklahoma City.
