Flydubai Chooses AAR's Power-by-Hour Solution

Posted 21 August 2016 · Add Comment

Dubai-based, low-cost carrier flydubai has signed a long-term, multimillion-dollar contract with the USA's AAR for power-by-the-hour component inventory management and repair services. The agreement is a significant expansion of AAR's commercial footprint in the Middle East.

AAR will assume nose-to-tail management of components and repairs for flydubai’s Next-Generation Boeing 737-800 fleet, starting with 53 aircraft and increasing to 60. The deal is expected to help flydubai reduce aircraft-on-ground time and contribute to its on-time performance.

In November 2013, flydubai announced an order for 75 737 MAX 8s and 11 Next-Generation Boeing 737-800s valued at US$ 8.8 billion at list prices, in addition to purchase rights for 25 more 737 MAXs. Last year, flydubai carried more than nine million passengers across its network of more than 85 destinations, becoming the second largest carrier, by passenger numbers, operating out of Dubai International.

“As flydubai continues on its robust growth trajectory, it must optimize its fleet’s performance while minimizing costs and aircraft-on-ground time,” said Deepak Sharma, President, AAR international supply chain.

Mick Hills, SVP Engineering and Maintenance at flydubai said: “We continue to invest in technologies and partnerships that strengthen our commitment to maintain the highest levels of reliability and safety in our operations.”
