Wood Dale, Illinois — AAR (NYSE: AIR), a leading provider of aviation services to commercial and government operators, MROs and OEMs, has signed a ten year agreement with Honeywell to be the sole channel partner licensee for component repair and overhaul services for the OEM’s suite of Electronic Bleed Air Systems (EBAS) covering 15 components on the B737 MAX aircraft.
The new agreement supplements AAR’s existing Honeywell license agreement that covers over 1,200 Honeywell components. AAR is also authorized to offer Honeywell’s new product warranty on all of these components including MAX line replaceable units (LRUs) and will provide expert component repair and overhaul services with timely delivery and state of the art customer service.
“This meaningful new agreement will allow AAR to support worldwide MAX operators as the fleet returns to service with our expert and proven component repair and overhaul services through our facilities in Amsterdam and New York,” said Ken Hein, AAR Group Vice President, Component Repair. “Our expertise in pneumatics makes AAR the logical choice to be Honeywell’s strategic partner. We look forward to providing MAX operators with the support they need to relaunch the fleet.”
