Delta TechOps signs extensions of three engine contracts
Delta TechOps has signed significant contract extensions with three customers from three different continents to continue performing high-skill engine, component and airframe work. Combined, the three contract extensions will result in more than $800 million in additional revenue over the course of the contracts.
Air Berlin has requested a 10-year extension to the original five-year agreement for off-wing maintenance on CFM56-7 engines which power Boeing 737NG type aircraft. ABX Air will receive an extension on its current engine repair and maintenance agreement. GOL Airlines has entered into a 10-year extension for its fleet of CFM56-3 and CFM56-7 engines which power the 737 Classic and 737NG type aircraft, respectively.
