The Flow-Through Program is the first of its kind between an airline and an aviation services provider to focus on education and career training and recruit new workers from diverse backgrounds.
Under the program, applicants will complete their training and feed into a role at an AAR maintenance facility. If the applicant is in good standing and has completed three years with AAR as an aircraft technician, they qualify to apply to a career opening at Alaska and are guaranteed an interview.
AAR believes the Alaska Airlines Flow-Through Agreement will help to attract new and upcoming technicians.
Price action: ALK shares are up 3.55% at $57.45, and AIR shares are trading higher by 1.96% at $37.01 on the last check Wednesday.
