Aftermarket provider AAR has signed a three-year agreement to supply landing gear overhaul and exchange services for U.S. airline group SkyWest’s operating carriers SkyWest Airlines and ExpressJet.
The agreement covers landing gear assemblies and sub-assemblies on its fleet of more than 400 Bombardier CRJ aircraft.
The contract also includes an option to be extended to five years. All work will be carried out at AAR’s landing gear repair station in Miami, where AAR has been carrying out repair work on SkyWest affiliated carriers since the 1990s.
“This latest contract is a testament to the quality AAR delivers and the loyalty AAR earns from our customers,” said Troy Jonas, vice president of MRO Services, AAR. “SkyWest and ExpressJet carry over 56 million passengers a year, and AAR’s team in Miami recognizes the role that our work plays in delivering them safely to each gate.”
