The Export-Import Bank of the United States has announced the issue of an Ex-Im Bank-guaranteed bond funded by the capital markets that raised USD40.7m for the Brazilian airline, VRG Linhas Aéreas S.A. (NYSE: GOL), for engine-maintenance services performed by Delta TechOps in Atlanta, Ga.

Delta TechOps is the maintenance, repair and overhaul division of Delta Air Lines Inc.
