Malaysia Airlines Selects AAR to Perform Repair and Maintenance on Landing Gear
WOOD DALE, Ill., /PRNewswire-FirstCall via COMTEX/ -- AAR (NYSE: AIR) announced today that it has been selected to perform maintenance, repair and overhaul of landing gear for Malaysia Airlines' 737-400 and 747-200 aircraft.
The maintenance will be performed in the United States at AAR Landing Gear Services' FAA, JAA and ISO 9001 certified facility in Miami, Florida. AAR's contract with Malaysia Airlines is a result of the recently established relationship between AAR and Malaysian maintenance company, Airod Sdn Bhd. In July 2004, at the Farnborough Air Show, AAR and Airod signed a teaming agreement to form an alliance in order to better serve landing gear customers in the Asia Pacific region.
"We are excited to work with Malaysia Airlines as we expand and offer services to more customers in the Asia Pacific region and around the world," said Pastor Lopez, General Manager, AAR Landing Gear Services. "By teaming with a company like Airod, we can extend our reach and offer more Asian customers the same world-class customer service our North American customers have come to expect from AAR."
"We are excited to be part of Malaysia Airlines' continuing cost savings initiatives," said Rahul Shah, Managing Director, Asia Pacific Operations for AAR. "Our customers can rely on AAR's expertise in repairing and maintaining a wide range of critical aircraft components for a variety of aircraft while they achieve significant cost savings compared with in-house maintenance programs."
