Delta TechOps is extending its relationship with Virgin Atlantic to include a new three-year agreement to provide exclusive MRO services. Under the new agreement, Delta TechOps will provide airframe maintenance support including aircraft modifications and C checks for Virgin Atlantic’s fleet of 10 Airbus A330 aircraft at Delta TechOps’ A330 Center of Excellence in Minneapolis-St Paul, MN.


GMF AeroAsia has completed a C check and AD/SB maintenance on the first of three Boeing 737NGs from Virgin Australia. The aircraft was also repainted into the colours of T’Way from Korea. A second aircraft arrived in late September for redelivery in early November, and the third is expected in January 2016.


Jet Aviation Basel recently delivered a brand new Airbus ACJ340-600 that it outfitted with a VIP cabin interior for an undisclosed client in Europe. This is the 18th Airbus delivery from the Basel Completions Center since 1999. The aircraft is equipped to carry up to 121 passengers and features: a forward galley, dining and lounge areas; a master bedroom and ensuite bathroom with shower; a second bedroom with its own bathroom; an office; first class seating and dining areas; a mid-galley complex; a staff seating area; and an aft galley. A CTT Systems CAIR humidification system has been integrated to heighten comfort during longhaul flights. In addition, the aircraft interior includes an extensive inflight entertainment system featuring satellite TV and a wireless local area network. This is linked to primary and alternate satellite communication systems and as such offers very high speed data.
