Delta TechOps has secured an exclusive maintenance, repair and overhaul partnership with Gol that stipulates TechOps will overhaul a minimum of 50% of Gol's CFM56-7 engines.
Additionally, Delta's maintenance division is consulting with Gol on maintenance workflow planning, materials and facility optimization and tooling and support. TechOps is also assisting Gol in its efforts to secure FAA Part 145 repair station certification.
Under the agreement, which has an additional five-year option, Gol has agreed to assist Delta with some line maintenance for Delta aircraft with extended ground time in Brazil.
Delta TechOps president Tony Charaf states the new partnership with Gol strengthens TechOps' ties in the South American market and extends its global MRO footprint.
