AAR expands in Middle East, opens parts warehouse in Dubai


AAR CORP, an independent provider of aviation services to airlines, original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and MROs worldwide, has opened a parts warehouse at Dubai World Central (DWC) Airport, on the 9th of February its official website reports.                                                              

The supply chain hub closes the gap between essential aircraft components and the growing list of commercial and regional carriers operating in the Middle East.

AAR leverages 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 today. So when an operator has an aircraft on the ground, they can now get the needed part quickly.

“We recognized 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,” Paul Richardson, AAR Vice President of Sales, said.

The warehouse is a natural extension of AAR’s growing presence in the Middle East. AAR has a dedicated sales team based in the World Trade Center in Abu Dhabi and has expanded its supply chain and Airlift offerings in the region where both military and commercial aviation activity is growing. 

AAR recently signed a multimillion-dollar contract to provide power-by-the-hour (PBH) component inventory management and repair services to the expanding airline FlyDubai. On the government side, AAR provides tip-to-tail Contractor Logistics Support (CLS) for the Afghan C-130 fleet.
