Delta strengthens commitment to Airbus A220 Series by firming up options for 12 more A220-300 jets.

Delta Air Lines, a prominent member of the SkyTeam alliance, has amplified its investment in Airbus A220-300s by exercising options to acquire twelve additional aircraft. This purchase solidifies Delta's firm commitment to the A220 series, elevating its total order to 131 units, inclusive of the smaller A220-100 variant.

In 2018, Delta Air Lines distinguished itself as the inaugural US operator of the A220 series. Its current fleet encompasses 45 units of the 109-seat A220-100 model and 16 of the larger 130-seat A220-300 model. Following the recent strategic decision, the airline will anticipate the delivery of another 70 A220-300s.

Kristen Bojko, Vice President of Fleet at Delta Air Lines, lauded the A220-300 for its efficacious performance and versatile capabilities. She emphasized that the ongoing augmentation of Delta's A220 fleet represents a crucial step towards the realization of more sustainable aviation.

The A220-300 aircraft, known for its fuel-efficient Pratt & Whitney GTF engines, is custom-configured by Delta to include 12 first-class seats, 30 enhanced-economy seats, and 88 main cabin seats. This strategic layout aligns with Delta's commitment to provide a diverse range of seating options to accommodate the varied needs of its passengers.
