AAR Signs Landing Gear Maintenance Contract with Asiana Airlines

For the first time, AAR will provide landing gear overhaul and exchange services for Asiana Airlines. The five-year agreement covers landing gear assemblies and sub-assemblies for Asiana’s 767-38EF-300 and 777-200ER aircraft.

The new partnership with the Asian carrier illustrates the growing reach of AAR’s Landing Gear Services in Asia. AAR will perform the landing gear overhauls in its dedicated Miami landing gear overhaul facility.

“AAR’s strong reputation, competitive shop turnaround time and proven quality has allowed us to forge relationships with new customers in the Asia Pacific region, one of the fastest-growing aviation markets in the world,” said Peter Loeb, Vice President, Global Sales and Marketing, AAR Landing Gear Services.

“Asiana Airlines knows it can count on AAR’s world-class standards for quality and reliability,” commented Dong-Jun Shin, General Manager, Aircrafts & Supplies Purchasing, Asiana Airlines.
