Trans States Airlines has announced an exclusive partnership with SONIC that will allow its mechanics to work smarter, faster, and more efficiently during their shifts, the company said.
In the agreement, SONIC and Trans States have committed to implement an apprentice supplied toolset and box as well as a streamlined process for maintenance employees to obtain new and replacement tools.
Rather than waiting for a provider to visit work sites weekly or making personal trips to hardware stores, Trans States employees will now have online access to order tools and have them shipped directly within 24-hours. SONIC will also offer a premium discount to Trans States maintenance technicians, a unique program of its kind.
Trans States serves over 4.5 million passengers a year, with approximately 237 daily flights providing service to over 70 cities in North America. Trans States operates the Embraer 145 on behalf of American Airlines (as American Eagle) and United Airlines (as United Express). Headquartered in St. Louis, Trans States has maintenance bases in Chicago (ORD), Denver (DEN), St. Louis (STL), and Washington D.C. (IAD), Louisville (SDF), and Arlington (DCA).
