INDIANAPOLIS, March 25, 2014 – AAR (NYSE: AIR) announces it has signed a general terms agreement with Aeromexico to provide heavy maintenance, or C checks, on three of the airline’s Boeing 767 aircraft. AAR will perform the work at the Indianapolis Maintenance Center, its largest maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) facility in the U.S., located on the Indianapolis airport.

Work has already begun on the first 767; two more aircraft will be delivered in the coming weeks. The contract is the first between AAR and Aeromexico, and expands on the aerospace and defense contractor’s global presence, which includes supply chain, cargo and transport, component repair and inventory management operations in Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Asia.
