AAR has opened a new parts facility at Dubai World Central Airport.
The aftermarket provider said that by opening the warehouse, it will close the gap between essential aircraft components and the increasing number of carriers operating in the Middle East.
Component suppliers for the new facility include Eaton, Unison, UTAS, Meggitt and Lord.
“We recognized a need in the region to improve support and reduce lead times for customers and to help our OEM partners better serve local operators while reducing their overhead burden,” said Paul Richardson, AAR vice president of sales, Europe, Middle East and Africa.
The move further grows the presence of the U.S.-headquartered company and follows the recent signing of a power-by-the-hour contract with low-cost carrier flydubai.
