Illinois-based AAR has signed a deal with Flybe to provide an inventory of wheels and brakes for its Bombardier Dash 8 Q400 fleet.

The maintenance and logistics firm will provide the parts to Flybe through a sale leaseback agreement and is adding more parts to its warehouse in Amsterdam to support the UK airline and other operators.

"We are delighted to have concluded this transaction with AAR which gives us an excellent competitive financial outcome whilst ensuring our continuity of supply with an industry leading partner," says John Palmer, Flybe's director of aircraft maintenance.

Flybe operates a fleet of 41 Q400 turboprops, Flightglobal's Ascend Online database shows.
