ATLANTA, April 13, 2015— Delta TechOps—Delta Air Lines’ (NYSE: DAL) maintenance division and its maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) provider business—announced today the establishment of a dedicated Aircraft Engine Hospital Shop that will specialize in strategic aircraft engine repairs requiring limited engine intrusion.
This dedicated, ISO 9000-certified Hospital Shop will specialize in shorter-visit aircraft engine maintenance spanning from as little as one day to ten. This new addition is also expected to reduce turn times across Delta TechOps’ other aircraft engine services, including overhauls, as this special line less-intrusive aircraft engine maintenance will not fall into other engine work queues. Moreover, the new structure includes a specialized team for engine field maintenance.
