Delta Air Lines’ maintenance division – Delta TechOps – has signed a seven-year contract with Alaska Airlines to provide engine overhaul and repair services for the CFM56-7 engines that power Alaska’s fleet of Boeing 737-700 and 737-900 aircraft. The deal, worth more than $200 million, leverages Delta’s unique partnership with Chromalloy Gas Turbine Corporation to provide Alaska with a comprehensive engine maintenance solution.

"We are very pleased to enter into this agreement with Delta TechOps, and look forward to the operational and financial benefits it will bring over the coming years," said Glenn Johnson, executive vice president Airports, Maintenance and Engineering for Alaska Airlines. "Delta TechOps will bring outstanding technical expertise, as well as a very engaged team to provide this important element of our engine maintenance strategy."

The agreement marks the first maintenance contract between Delta TechOps and Alaska Airlines, and adds to the impressive growth of Delta TechOps’ engine maintenance business.

Delta TechOps is a leader in operational experience with the CFM56 engine and is one of the largest CFM56 MRO providers.
