AAR Celebrates Completion of 100TH Aircraft at Duluth Maintenance Facility Area

AAR have announced a maintenance milestone at its Duluth repair station – completion of the 100th aircraft for its customer Air Canada.

Since re-opening the abandoned 188,000-square-foot hangar in November 2012, AAR has had an annual economic impact on the state of $47 million. Today, AAR Aircraft Services – Duluth supports three lines of aircraft maintenance and 305 jobs.

It was announced at the event that AAR has signed a five-year contract including renewable options with Air Canada to provide aircraft maintenance. The Duluth facility is currently dedicated to the commercial carrier’s narrow-body Airbus fleet, exclusively servicing the A319, A320 and A321 aircraft. AAR is on track to open a fourth line of maintenance in September, creating another 70 positions.

“This achievement is especially meaningful for AAR. Not only is it further confirmation that Duluth was the right choice for us, it also shows that our investment in this facility and this city is paying off,” said Dany Kleiman, Aviation Services Group Vice President – Repair and Engineering. “I want to give a special thanks to the talented men and women on the maintenance lines who helped us get to this point. They have shown the same teamwork and dedication to complete the 100th aircraft as they did with the very first.”
