Delta TechOps—Delta Air Lines’ maintenance division and MRO provider business—opened a line maintenance hangar at its Tokyo-Narita International Airport hub on Monday with Narita airport and Japanese government officials on-hand to mark the occasion.
The leased 13,000 square-metre facility will provide enhanced TechOps support for Delta’s Boeing 747-400, 777, 767, 757 and Airbus A330 transoceanic aircraft. More than 100 Delta TechOps professionals work at the NRT operation.
“The new hangar allows us to enhance our capabilities and further support our stellar workforce at Narita,” said Lee Gossett, vice president – Line Maintenance. “We continue to look for more efficient and effective opportunities to handle our routine and non-routine maintenance requirements. This facility will give us much needed flexibility to support Delta’s operation and our customers in the Asia-Pacific region.”
