AAR Signs Multi-year 737 MAX Flight-Hour Component Support Contract with flydubai

Our Bureau - : Oct 21, 2022 - : 9:55 pm

Leading aviation services provider AAR has signed a new multi-year flight-hour component support contract, expanding its relationship with flydubai to include additional aircraft in the carrier’s Boeing 737 MAX fleet.

The inventory for the program will be located in Dubai. AAR will grow its onsite team and work alongside flydubai.

“AAR’s continued support over the last five years has enabled flydubai to maintain the optimum levels of efficiency and quick turnarounds when it comes to our fleet maintenance,” said Mick Hills, flydubai’s Chief Operations Officer. “The experience and reliability this partnership adds to our operations will continue to be collaborative, especially as we bring more of our MRO capabilities in house.”

flydubai operates a single fleet-type of 68 Boeing 737 aircraft that includes 32 Next-Generation Boeing 737-800, 33 Boeing 737 MAX 8, and 3 Boeing 737 MAX 9 aircraft. The carrier is expected to take delivery of 11 737 MAX aircraft by the end of the year as it continues to retire more of its 737 Next-Generations.

“It is a privilege to use our expertise and inventory to improve component support reliability and efficiency for flydubai,” said Colin Craig, AAR’s Vice President, Business Development, Integrated Solutions. “flydubai’s decision to place further trust in AAR’s ability to provide excellent operational support speaks to the success of embedding our services with customers.”

AAR began supporting flydubai’s flagship fleet of Boeing 737 MAX in 2017 and signed a contract extension for the carrier’s 737 Next Generation fleet in 2021.
