Delta Air Lines is changing contractors for the cleaning of its aircraft cabins at Atlanta Hartsfield-Jackson International from ABM Aviation to AirCo, a report claims.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution says ABM has notified the Georgia Department of Economic Development this month that it will no longer provide those services for Delta at the world’s busiest airport, which is Delta’s main hub.

Delta reportedly said it regularly reviews suppliers and contracts for aircraft cleaning, janitorial, wheelchair and security vendors and is in the process of notifying contractors of its selections for this year.

Ground handling services provider AirCo was formed last year after the airline sold a stake to its subsidiary Delta Global Services as part of a deal with Argenbright Holdings I LLC. AirCo is jointly owned by Argenbright, with a 51 per cent stake, and Delta, with a 49 percent stake.
