Alaska Airlines has awarded AAR a 10-year component repair and management services contract for 87 Boeing 737-700, -800 and -900 aircraft in a new cost-per-flight-hour programme.

AAR's Aviation Supply Chain group will manage the programme and will be backed by systems and resources gained through its acquisition of component repair management provider, Airinmar.

AAR has worked with Alaska for more than a decade, it says.
