The Military Sealift Command (MSC) has awarded AAR’s Airlift division a contract to provide vertical replenishment (VERTREP) services to its 5th and 7th Fleets in the Mediterranean Sea, Arabian Gulf, and Indian and Western Pacific oceans. The contract is valued at approximately $34 million, inclusive of all options.

Military Sealift Command provides ocean transportation for the Navy and the U.S. Department of Defense, operating approximately 110 ships daily around the globe. AAR has been performing commercial VERTREP services including ship-to-shore replenishment, ship-to-ship underway replenishment, search and rescue, and support for humanitarian aid operations for MSC since 2007.

AAR Airlift will provide two helicopters, personnel, and operational and technical support to the detachment. The new contract will be the third helicopter detachment operated by the company for MSC.
