Airbus Military selects AAR for logistics
AAR has announced that it has been selected by Airbus Military to provide off-wing repairs management and logistics services as part of five-year programmes that will enable Airbus Military to streamline its supply chain and increase the efficiency of its maintenance operations and performance-based logistics support provided worldwide.
According to the company, AAR will provide a single point of contact for the repair of components that Airbus Military previously outsourced to multiple vendors. The programmes will focus primarily on support of CASA C-212, CN-235 and C-295 aircraft but with scope to support other Airbus Military platforms. AAR also has been selected by Airbus Military to establish and manage the logistics of a Repair Hub at the Airbus Military facilities at San Pablo Norte Spain, where the final assembly lines for the A-400M and the rest of CASA Tactical Mission Aircraft are located.
AAR will draw on its extensive experience with supply chain and component repair management for commercial airline and government fleets, including the KC-10 Extender Contractor Logistics Support (CLS) programme and the UK Ministry of Defence’s fleet of E3-D Sentry Aircraft.
