AAR Celebrates Delivery of 500th Aircraft to Alaska Airlines

AAR delivered the 500th aircraft to long-time customer Alaska Airlines. For 12 years, AAR has performed aircraft maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO), including heavy checks and drop-ins, component repair and management, on Alaska’s fleet of classic Boeing 737s and 737NG narrow-body aircraft.

Most of the work has been performed at AAR’s MRO facility in Oklahoma City that has a service capacity ranging from 6 to 12 lines of maintenance, and performs approximately 1 million man hours a year at the facility; nearly 300,000 with Alaska Airlines. AAR provides two continuous lines of overhaul maintenance for Alaska and additionally handles between 50 and 75 drop-in visits annually for the airline.

AAR recently celebrated the milestone with its employees and Alaska Airlines executives at a reception at the 300,000-square-foot Oklahoma facility.

“We value the relationship and the trust that Alaska Airlines has placed in AAR to help ensure the safe and efficient operation of its fleet,” said Dany Kleiman, AAR Group Vice President – Repair and Engineering. “A special thanks goes to our employees. We owe this achievement to their dedication and leadership. We look forward to partnering with Alaska Airlines well into the future.”
