WOOD DALE, Ill., /PRNewswire/ -- AAR CORP. (NYSE: AIR) and Grupo TACA announced today that they have signed an exclusive agreement under which AAR will be the exclusive provider of landing gear overhaul and repair services for the alliance's fleet of 42 regional aircraft.

"This is another example of our ability to provide customized, value-added services to meet customers' needs and enable them to operate more efficiently."

"AAR's performance in our original agreement combined with their ability to provide service and support capabilities for various aircraft type were key to our decision to award them this contract," Federico Bloch, Grupo TACA President and Chief Executive Officer, said.
