The U.S. Marshals Service (USMS) has awarded AAR a five-year contract to perform full maintenance and logistical support services for its Boeing 737 series aircraft owned and operated by the Justice Prisoner and Alien Transportation System (JPATS) in Oklahoma City, Okla. The agreement is valued at US $51 million.
AAR will provide labor, supplies, tools, materials and equipment in support of the aircraft at the USMS facility located at Will Rogers World Airport in Oklahoma City. The effort will be supported by AAR’s Oklahoma City repair station. The contract also includes full maintenance and logistics support services for another Boeing 737 series aircraft located at the McCarran International Airport in Las Vegas, Nev.
AAR has been supporting the government agency as either a prime or a subcontractor performing aircraft maintenance, FBO services, supply chain and depot services for more than three decades.
“AAR is proud to expand our trusted partnership with the U.S. Marshals Service,” said Stan Mayer, General Manager of AAR’s Oklahoma MRO. “AAR delivers mission-tailored services and capabilities based on commercial best practices that result in quality work and cost savings for the customer.”
AAR will begin offering full support on December 1, 2018.
The USMS/JPATS manages the coordination, scheduling and secure handling of prisoners in federal custody, transporting them to detention facilities, courts and correctional institutions across the 94 judicial districts via a network of aircraft, buses, vans and cars.
