Delta TechOps Named Aviation Week 'MRO of the Year - Outstanding Maintenance Group'

ATLANTA, April 20, 2010—Delta Air Lines’ (NYSE: DAL) maintenance division, Delta TechOps, today was named the Aviation Week MRO of the Year – Outstanding Maintenance Group.

The MRO of the Year Awards recognize the best Maintenance Repair and Overhaul providers worldwide for pioneering achievements. Award recipients are selected by the editors of Overhaul & Maintenance magazine in four separate categories, including Outstanding Maintenance Group.

“It’s an honor to be recognized by one of the industry’s leading publications for our leadership in service, innovation and technology in the global MRO industry,” said Tony Charaf, president – Delta TechOps. “Our achievements rest solely on the shoulders of our experienced team of more than 8,500 maintenance professionals around the world.”

The award recognized Delta TechOps for its recent merger integration with Northwest Airlines, which successfully leveraged the expertise of both maintenance divisions to maintain best practices and maintenance skills, including adding Northwest’s industry-leading Airbus proficiency to Delta.

Aviation Week specifically noted Delta TechOps’ successful bid to support Hawaiian Airlines’ Airbus A330s through a multiyear “Complete Fleet” agreement that includes line maintenance, component maintenance services, inventory, planning, maintenance and engineering support and contractor management. Delta TechOps secured this agreement as a direct result of its successful integration with Northwest.

Other new or expanded third-party customers secured by Delta TechOps in the last year include Star Air, World Airways and North American Airlines, First Jet, CanJet, EVA Airways, LAN Airlines, Ethiopian Airlines, Omni Air, SkyMark Airlines and Sun Country Airlines. In total, the TechOps MRO now serves more than 150 airline customers worldwide.
