Delta Air Lines’ maintenance division and maintenance, repair and overhaul provider business, Delta TechOps, signed nine component MRO contracts worth $225 million during the first quarter of 2023. The exclusive agreements range between three and five years and cover both Airbus and Boeing fleets, depending on the customer.
Customers range from cargo carriers to passenger airlines across the globe. The programs will primarily support B737, B767, A320 and A330 aircraft platforms, and cover a large scope of parts from avionics to mechanical to fuel and hydraulic components.
“Over the past few years, we have utilized our experience as an operator to expand our component capabilities and offerings,” said Mahendra Nair, senior vice president, Delta TechOps. “We have increased our scope of work across numerous platforms and are proud to provide enhanced services to these customers.”
The programs will support customers’ current fleet of aircraft along with their anticipated fleet growth in the coming years.
“We are thrilled these customers have chosen Delta TechOps as their component maintenance provider,” said Basil Papayoti, VP – sales & marketing, Delta TechOps. “We look forward to supporting them, watching their fleets expand and growing our partnerships.”
Delta TechOps has been supporting the B737, B767, A320 and A330 aircraft platforms for 30 years, including airframe, components and engine maintenance. TechOps will continue to support these platforms, and future platforms such as the B737-10 aircraft, as Delta Air Lines announced the purchase of B737-10 aircraft. Alongside the MAX purchase, Delta TechOps will become a service provider for the next-generation LEAP-1B aircraft engine under an agreement with CFM International.
