Delta Air Lines and Grupo Aeromexico inaugurate TechOps Mexico
Delta Air Lines and Grupo Aeromexico inaugurated their aircraft maintenance, repair and overhaul center, TechOps Mexico. TechOps Mexico is located near the Queretaro Intercontinental Airport. Both airlines invested a total of US$55m, divided into equal shares, to construct these new facilities, which are located next to the Queretaro Aerospace Park. This project also received support from the state government of Queretaro. The facility is the largest aircraft maintenance, repair and overhaul center in Latin America, with its total surface area measuring over 100,000 m². Its three hangars can accommodate up to nine aircraft simultaneously. The crew that will service the airplanes is being trained and updated in the classrooms of the Aeronautics University of Queretaro, which collaborated with TechOps Mexico and agreed to prepare its graduates to enter the labor market with training of the highest quality. In addition to featuring the most modern facilities of its kind in Latin America, TechOps Mexico is equipped with advanced systems for renewable and clean energy that reduce the use of traditional energy by one third, as well as a rainwater harvesting system, a recycling program, and other environmentally-friendly mechanisms.
