Pratt & Whitney and Delta TechOps have expanded their relationship through three new agreements valued at more than $1 billion.

The United Technologies division signed two 10-year aircraft engine service pacts worth more than $1 billion, plus a $50 million long-term JT8D-219 engine parts agreement.

Pratt & Whitney's commercial engines and global services unit will provide Delta and Delta TechOps with maintenance, material and aftermarket support in an inventory logistics programme and a parts repair agreement.

The inventory logistics programme covers material replacement and parts repair for the SkyTeam alliance member's fleet of more than 80 PW4000 engines.

Parts repair covers material replacement and part repairs for Delta TechOps' maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) customers and both deals include commitment to develop and implement new repairs.

Per the third agreement, Pratt & Whitney will be the exclusive supplier of most JT8D-219 material including compressor, turbine blades and vanes. The Hartford, Connecticut-based company will also stock the parts in an on-site consignment warehouse within the Delta TechOps facility in Atlanta.
