AAR has signed a multi-year component support agreement with Viva Colombia and Viva Air Peru.
The component services specialist will provide pool support to affiliate airlines within the Viva LatinAmerica group including VivaColombia, Colombia's first low-cost carrier, and the newly established low-cost carrier Viva Air in Peru.
AAR will make inventory available from its facilities in Miami and Chicago, as well as positioning stock in Bogota, Medellin and Lima.
“This contract is the latest example of how AAR’s flight-hour support programs are a perfect fit for fast-growing airlines in emerging markets, in addition to established carriers in major markets,” said John Holmes, president and chief operating officer at AAR.
“We use our capital, buying power and experience in component support on behalf of our partners, so they can focus on cost-effective operations and expansion.”
