AAR CORP. broke ground on its new maintenance, repair, and overhaul facility in Miami, Florida.

AAR’s new 114,000 square foot facility is being constructed adjacent to the company’s existing hangar at Miami International Airport and will increase maintenance capacity at AAR’s airframe MRO by 33%. The new three-bay facility will support a dedicated narrow body maintenance commitment from United Airlines and create more than 200 jobs in Miami.

“This expansion will strengthen the robust training and repair programs AAR is known for and bring more than 200 new jobs to Miami-Dade County,” said Miami-Dade County Mayor Daniella Levine Cava.

More than 400 attendees gathered to celebrate the occasion, where AAR’s Chairman, President and CEO John M. Holmes expressed appreciation for the collaborative efforts that are making the expansion possible. United Airlines’ Vice President of Tech Ops – Heavy Maintenance James Crane, Miami International Airport Director and CEO Ralph Cutié, and Miami-Dade County Mayor Daniella Levine Cava also shared their enthusiasm for the project in prepared remarks.

“The construction of this facility is an important step in AAR’s growth strategy that enables us to best serve our valued customers. We are enthusiastic that our expansion in Miami will create career opportunities and continue to strengthen the aviation industry in south Florida,” said Holmes.
