AAR has signed a five-year exclusive contract with Air Canada to support its fleet of 89 Airbus A319, A320 and A321 narrow-body aircraft. The scheduled heavy maintenance will be performed at AAR’s maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) facility at Duluth International Airport.
The five-year deal formally extends service that began under a letter of intent signed in October 2012. Work initially commenced at AAR’s aircraft maintenance facility in Miami and was transitioned to Duluth after AAR opened the new MRO in November of that year.
The contract was ceremonially signed by AAR and Air Canada executives today at an event to celebrate a maintenance milestone at AAR’s Duluth repair station – completion of the hundredth aircraft for Air Canada.
