AAR has signed a long-term contract with Ameco Beijing on the support of Rolls-Royce RB211 engines.

The deal will include the provision of repair and exchange, as well as leasing services of the engine, says AAR.

"We admire Ameco’s outstanding reputation as China’s largest RB211 shop," says AAR's vice-president and chief commercial officer Chris Jessup. "This agreement is another example of AAR’s successful expanding relationships with Asia."

In recent weeks, AAR won deals to maintain Air New Zealand's Airbus A320 family aircraft, as well as component support for Air Malta's fleet of A320neo jets.

The RB211 engines are used to power aircraft types including Boeing 747s, 757s, and 767s, as well as Tupolev Tu-204.
