Carrier Doesn't Want Inefficient Planes... But Someone
AAR announced this week it has been selected by United Airlines
to remarket and provide technical advisory services for United's
fleet of wholly-owned Boeing 737 aircraft, which the company has
previously announced will be retired from service.
Under the terms of the agreement, AAR will assist United in
placing its 737s with operators around the world -- with a focus on
operators outside the US -- looking to upgrade or expand their
fleets. The aircraft are available immediately.
"We will use AAR's global reach and resources to identify
carriers that would benefit from adding high-quality 737s to their
fleets in markets where demand is more robust or growing," said
John Johnson, Vice President, AAR Aircraft Sales and Leasing. "Over
the years, AAR has developed a broad network of customers for this
aircraft type through our leasing activities, as well as our supply
chain, maintenance and engineering services and support."
As ANN reported, United announced in June it
would park its entire fleet of Boeing 737-300 and -500 aircraft, as
well as six of its aging 747-400 long-haul widebodies -- a full 15
percent of its former mainline fleet -- in order to cut capacity,
and fly those remaining routes with more fuel-efficient
No strangers to the aircraft resale market, AAR says it will
provide a broad range of technical services for potential
purchasers of United's surplus 737s, including aircraft evaluations
services and condition analysis.
So, if you've ever wanted your very own 737... now's your
