Airborne Maintenance & Engineering Services, a wholly owned subsidiary of Air Transport Services Group Inc. (Nasdaq: ATSG), today announced it has signed a multi-year agreement to provide additional heavy maintenance capacity for United Airlines. This agreement supports Airborne’s continued facility and personnel growth.
Under the terms of the agreement, Airborne will provide heavy maintenance support for United’s Boeing 767 wide-body fleet and the airline’s Boeing 737, Boeing 757 and Airbus A320 narrow-body fleets. The work will be performed at Airborne’s maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) facilities in Wilmington, Ohio and Tampa, Fla.
Airborne President Todd France stated, “Our team is elated that United Airlines continues to recognize the value of our heavy maintenance services, including our flexibility to meet United’s evolving needs over the last year. We look forward to continuing to provide reliable on-time maintenance of their aircraft over the next several years.”
The agreement brings this portion of United’s maintenance work to Airborne from other MROs, and is expected to fill three heavy maintenance lines in Wilmington and four heavy maintenance lines in Tampa.
