AAR has announced that the US Transportation Command (USTRANSCOM) has exercised a renewal option for the company to provide airlift support in Afghanistan until 31 May, 2013. The option has a value of $104 million and is part of a task order awarded to AAR in June 2010.

The contract will see AAR’s airlift operating unit continue to support the requirement using 15 fixed-wing aircraft from its fleet. The company provides both fixed-wing and rotary-wing aircraft, related personnel, equipment and maintenance to transport personnel, cargo and mail for US Department of Defence and NATO operations in Afghanistan.

According to the company, the mission of USTRANSCOM is to direct deployment and distribution in support of national security capabilities and to provide end-to-end process visibility and responsive support of joint, US government and Secretary of Defence-approved multinational and non-governmental logistical requirements.
