Delta Airlines strikes a bargain when searching for a mode to power their Airbus A321neo aircraft. Coming to terms with Pratt and Whitney, they have agreed to provide not only the PW1100G-JM engine for the A321neo but has also placed Delta Airlines on their list of approved PW1000-series geared turbofan (GTF) overhaul shops. In doing so Delta is presented with a new field of opportunity in aftermarket sales and hopes to, “keep its own MRO costs low while offsetting them with millions of dollars in third-party revenue by in-sourcing work from other airlines.”
Deltas Tech Ops MRO Division will be the one responsible for the aftermarket support. Delta has great resources that will be allocated to a prime support for the Airbus A321neo engines and will also be very useful for Pratt and Whitney’s PW1500Gs. The PW1500 is also used to power Bombardiers C Series aircraft which Delta has placed an order for a new 75 C Series.
Deltas CEO is very confident in their efforts to try and better their company by stating,”
The other thing that was really important for us to obtain from Pratt was the ability to actually execute on that plan with the repair capabilities and having the tools and the technology transfer that we're going to work together on to position Delta as the premier provider and engine repair shop for the geared turbofan across the board."
A slight concern has risen with the allocation of Deltas Atlantas based Tech Ops facility as it is nearby Pratts Columbus, Ga GTF facility located a near 100 miles up the road. MRO Network states that Delta should not be affected due to the volume of their orders in the upcoming years.
