Delta Air Lines orders a dozen more A220 aircraft

Delta Air Lines has firmed up an order for a dozen more A220-300 aircraft, bringing the airline’s total firm order for A220s to 119 aircraft. The breakdown is 45 A220-100s and 74 A220-300s.

Throughout the years, Delta has reordered the A220 four times and is now the largest A220 customer and operator.

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,” said Christian Scherer, Airbus chief commercial officer and head of International. “The aircraft is currently connecting Delta passengers on more than 100 routes.” The A220 was built for the 100-150 seat market.

Delta took delivery of its first Airbus A220 in October 2018, and was the first U.S. carrier to operate the aircraft. Delta currently owns a fleet of 415 Airbus aircraft, 59 A220s, 266 A320 Family aircraft, 62 A330s and 28 A350-900s.

With 246 A220s delivered to 16 airlines, the aircraft is operating from four continents.

To date, more than 70 million passengers have enjoyed the A220. The fleet is currently flying on over 825 routes and 325 destinations worldwide. As of the end of December, nearly 30 customers have ordered close to 800 A220 aircraft.
