American Airlines has decided to co-locate its maintenance operations centre (MOC) with its systems operation control centre (SOC) in Fort Worth, Texas, which will result in 200 positions at the current MOC location in Tulsa being affected by the move.

American says it is working with the Transport Workers Union to determine relocation options for employees as it completes the change during the next two years.

Recognising the decision was difficult, American says co-locating the MOC and SOC "will allow us to provide better customer service and focus on improving our on-time performance".

American says it is examining an integrated MOC/SOC approach being used by Delta and United, "and studying how they implemented similar changes".
