“These 12 additional A220 aircraft will help power our increasingly streamlined fleet while also providing our customers with the elevated in-flight experience they’ve come to expect from Delta,” said Kristen Bojko, vice president of fleet, Delta Air Lines.
Christian Scherer, Airbus chief commercial officer and head of international said: “Delta Air Lines was the U.S. launch customer for the A220 and this fourth reorder in just four years by a leading carrier as Delta is a most gratifying endorsement.”
He added: “The aircraft is currently connecting Delta passengers on more than 100 routes at 25 percent less fuel and CO2 emissions. If you want to connect today and tomorrow, you can’t do any better!”
