Delta Air Lines’ maintenance division, Delta TechOps, has expanded its relationship with Sun Country Airlines with agreements to provide auxiliary power unit (APU) and component maintenance services.
As part of one agreement, Delta TechOps will provide exclusive maintenance on the GTCP 131-9B engine APUs for Sun Country’s fleet of nine Boeing 737NGs for five years. A second agreement extends an existing contract to 2018 for Delta TechOps to supply inventory support and service – including integrated component repair and exchanges – for Sun Country’s entire 737NG fleet. Delta TechOps has been providing maintenance services to Sun Country’s aircraft since 2001.
“During our nine-year partnership with Delta TechOps, they’ve provided the customised solutions we need, along with unparalleled service and the best technicians in the industry,” remarked Tony Kubit, director of engineering for Sun Country Airlines. “Their proven expertise in 737NG maintenance and familiarity with our growing fleet made them the obvious choice to provide our APU maintenance and component services going forward.”
