Delta Air Lines and Airbus agreed to add 25 additional A321neo aircraft to the airline’s order book, and brought forward deliveries of two A350-900s and one A330-900neo for the second half of 2022.
Delta expects to take delivery of its first A321neo in the first half of 2022. With these incremental aircraft, Delta’s total purchase commitment for the A321neo will now be 125 firm aircraft, with 100 purchase rights.
“We thank Airbus for their steadfast partnership during the pandemic and look forward to working with them as we take delivery of the A321neo as well as our accelerated A350 and A330-900neo deliveries”, said Mahendra Nair, Delta’s S.V.P. – Fleet and TechOps Supply Chain.
Delta’s A321neos will be equipped with total seating for 194 customers with 20 in First Class, 42 in Delta Comfort+ and 132 in the Main Cabin. The new aircraft will be deployed primarily across Delta’s extensive domestic network.
