American Airlines will insource additional component maintenance work in the Brake and Wheel Center (BWC) at its Base Maintenance facility in Tulsa, Oklahoma, beginning January 1, 2020. The work will be transitioning from an outside vendor to Tulsa and will include wheel and brake component maintenance for its aircraft, including the Airbus A319, A320, A321, A321neo and A330, as well as Boeing 757 and 787 aircraft.
The new component work rounds out a year of growth at Tech Ops – Tulsa. Earlier this year, American Airlines and the City of Tulsa invested in a new tail slot modification for Hangar 2D at the base maintenance facility to create space for larger aircraft. The team also began maintenance work on the first scheduled line of Airbus A319 jets as well as scheduled maintenance on the Boeing 787. To support the additional work this year, the base also hired more than 500 maintenance staff.Email Post to a Friend
