Delta To Outsource Heavy Maintenance, Up to 2000 Jobs May Be Lost

Delta announced yesterday that it will be outsourcing its heavy maintenance to two firms in an effort to save $240 million over the next five years. Miami's Avborne will handle the company's MD-88s and MD-90s, while Vancouver's Air Canada Technical Services will handle the 757s and 767s. It will also move maintenance out of the Tampa hangar to Atlanta.

The 2000 jobs are considered to be part of the 6000 to 7000 job cuts Delta announced the previous September.
