American Airlines to shift 230 jobs from Tulsa to Texas

— American Airlines plans to relocate its maintenance operations center and 230 jobs from Tulsa to its main hub of Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport.

American said earlier this week that the integration of the maintenance control technicians, in a move to improve efficiency, will take place by fall 2012.

Tulsa leaders and officials with the Transport Workers Union had urged American not to move the operations center, which talks to mechanics and pilots about any maintenance issues.

The DFW systems operation control facility works with pilots on issues such as fuel loads, weight and balance and other operating factors.

The airline operates the world’s largest aircraft maintenance base in Tulsa, with nearly 7,000 employees.
