AAR Wins 3rd Year Extension for Airlift Support of US DoD

  • Largest airlift provider in Afghanistan supports Military and NATO operations

AAR (NYSE: AIR) announces the United States Transportation Command (USTRANSCOM) has exercised a renewal option for AAR Airlift to continue its airlift support in Afghanistan. The renewal is tied to one of several contracts AAR has with the U.S. Department of Defense to provide fixed and rotary wing airlift support in the region. The option has a value of approximately $161 million and is part of a contract originally awarded to AAR in October 2010.

AAR Airlift provides staff, equipment and maintenance to transport personnel, cargo and mail over land and sea in support of U.S. and NATO operations. AAR will fulfill this requirement using two Sikorsky S-92, six Sikorsky S-61, and two Bell 214 ST10 helicopters.
