AAR awarded new contract for airlift services in Africa

AAR announces the US Transportation Command (USTRANSCOM) has awarded its Airlift division a contract to provide dedicated rotary-wing airlift services to US Africa Command (USAFRICOM) throughout four Central African countries. The government has dismissed a protest – which was filed upon award to AAR in May – and AAR will begin performance on the contract in October.

Under the contract, AAR will perform rotary-wing passenger and cargo transportation services and logistics support for Allied Forces. The operation will be based in the Central African Republic and also service the Democratic Republic of Congo, Republic of South Sudan and Uganda. The total value of the contract is approximately $34 million, inclusive of all optional task orders.

“AAR Airlift is pleased to announce the addition of another new Africa-based operation to our portfolio,” said Randy J. Martinez, President and CEO, AAR Airlift Group. “We are proud to support our national service members and allies in this important region.”
USTRANSCOM is the Department of Defense’s (DoD) single entity for transportation, sustainment and distribution to the nation’s warfighters. Its responsibilities include the procurement of commercial transportation services for U.S. military forces. USAFRICOM is one of six of the DoD’s geographic combatant commands and is responsible for military relations with African nations, the African Union and African regional security organizations.
