Aviation Technical Services expands service to Southwest Airlines at Kansas City Facility
Aviation Technical Services (ATS) has reached an agreement with its longtime customer Southwest Airlines to provide Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul (MRO) services to the carrier at its newly‐acquired and renovated facility at Kansas City International Airport (MCI). The work will begin later this year and will take place over the course of the next three years. Over the course of several decades, Southwest has been bringing its planes to ATS’ location on Paine Field in Everett, Washington. The expansion to Kansas City is a good fit for Southwest, where the carrier operates 67 daily nonstop flights to 26 destinations.
