The U.S. Marshals Service has signed a purchase commitment with Wood Dale-based AAR Corp. for two Boeing 737-400 aircraft for delivery in September.

In addition to finding the aircraft, AAR will provide airframe and landing gear overhaul, aircraft painting and interior reconfiguration. AAR recently delivered two similar aircraft to the Colombian Air Force as part of a cost-effective program that included the conversion of the aircraft for cargo transport and the supply of custom seat pallets.

The program demonstrates AAR's wide range of capabilities, which the Company combines to create custom-tailored solutions for its commercial, federal civilian government, and defense customers.

"This program will enable AAR to deliver an efficient, cost-effective means to satisfy the U.S. Marshal Service, Justice Prisoner and Alien Transportation System's prisoner transport requirements," said Donald J. Wetekam, Senior Vice President of Government and Defense Business Development for AAR. "Our one-stop shop approach to procurement, overhaul and reconfiguration enables us to react quickly to a variety of customer needs."
