TULSA, Okla. (AP) - An airline’s support division has signed up for Oklahoma’s tax credit program for job creation and could add as many as 250 workers to its Tulsa location.

BizJet International Sales & Support, a subsidiary of Germany-based Lufthansa, has about 350 employees at its headquarters at Tulsa’s airport. On Thursday, BizJet acknowledged its entry into the Oklahoma Quality Jobs program.

Bizjet hasn’t announced how many jobs it plans to add at its aircraft repair, maintenance and interiors facility.

BizJet chief financial officer Sven Duve told the Tulsa World (http://is.gd/Ej5LMr ) the company plans to grow and will make an expansion announcement later.

BizJet overhauls Rolls Royce aircraft engines, which it has done since opening in Tulsa in 1986. Five years ago, the company began installing VIP cabin systems in small jets.
