MRO-ME: New parts warehouse for Dubai South

Posted 9 February 2017 · Add Comment

A new parts warehouse has opened at Dubai World Central airport at Dubai South.

AAR, the American service provider to airlines, OEMs and MROs worldwide, announced the opening of the warehouse during the MRO Middle East show in Dubai today. 

AAR said has leveraged its partnerships with industry-leading OEMs such as Eaton, Unison, UTAS, Meggitt and Lord to stock the warehouse with a wide array of factory-new aircraft components that are powering aircraft in the Middle East, so when an operator has an aircraft on the ground, they can now get the needed part quickly.
“We recognised a need in the region to improve support and reduce lead times for customers and to help our OEM partners better serve local operators while reducing their overhead burden,” said Paul Richardson, AAR vice president of sales, Europe, Middle East and Africa.
The warehouse is a natural extension of AAR’s growing presence in the Middle East. AAR has a dedicated sales team based in the World Trade Centre in Abu Dhabi and has expanded its supply chain and airlift offerings in the region where both military and commercial aviation activity is growing.
AAR recently signed a multimillion-dollar contract to provide power-by-the-hour component inventory management and repair services to the hybrid airline Flydubai. On the government side, AAR provides tip-to-tail contractor logistics support for the Afghan C-130 fleet.
