New parts warehouse for Dubai South
AAR, the American service provider to airlines, OEMs and MROs worldwide, has announced the opening of the warehouse during the MRO Middle East show in Dubai.
The new warehouse is an extension of AAR’s growing presence in the Middle East, where it already has offices in Abu Dhabi and a dedicated sales team on the ground in the UAE’s capital.
AAR has expanded its supply chain and airlift offerings in the region in response to strong growth in both military and commercial aviation activity.
AAR has leveraged its partnerships with industry-leading OEMs such as Eaton, Unison, UTAS, Meggitt and Lord to stock the warehouse with a wide array of factory-new aircraft components that are powering aircraft in the Middle East.
“We recognised a need in the region to improve support and reduce lead times for customers and to help our OEM partners better serve local operators while reducing their overhead burden,” said Paul Richardson, AAR vice president of sales, Europe, Middle East and Africa.
AAR recently signed a multimillion-dollar contract to provide power-by-the-hour component inventory management and repair services to the budget airline Flydubai, which also carries cargo in bellyhold.
On the government side, AAR provides tip-to-tail contractor logistics support for the Afghan C-130 fleet.
