AAR Airlift commences operations in Central Africa

AAR Corp has announced that its Airlift division has commenced operations in Central Africa to provide fixed-wing lift services to U.S. Africa Command (USAFRICOM) under a contract with U.S. Transportation Command (USTRANSCOM).

AAR Airlift will provide passenger and cargo transportation services, aerial delivery and logistics support for allied forces. The contract is worth up to $23 million.

Jeff Wehrenberg, COO for AAR Airlift Group, said: “Due to the lack of infrastructure in much of Central Africa, U.S. forces rely on commercial providers like AAR Airlift to sustain in-theatre operations. AAR has an excellent record of performance in rugged environments and remote locations, and we see this region as a great expansion opportunity for the company.”
