Grupo Aeromexico and Delta to construct joint heavy maintenance facility at Queretaro Airport

3-Sep-2012 12:28 PM

Grupo Aeromexico and Delta Air Lines announced (31-Aug-2012) plan to commence construction of a jointly operated aircraft maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) centre at Queretaro Intercontinental Airport. As part of a MoU and continuation of their commercial alliance, the carriers will invest equal amounts in a project to move work currently being done at Guadalajara International Airport and expand MRO capabilities for their own aircraft and other carriers. The new facility's heavy maintenance capacity will allow for up to seven aircraft to be serviced simultaneously. Delta Air Lines acquired a 4.17% stake in Grupo Aeromexico in Jun-2012.
