Delta Air Lines orders 20 A-350/1000 aircraft

This model will be a new airplane type in carrier’s fleet

Delta Air Lines has chosen Airbus to meet its needs for modern efficient widebodies having placed a first order for 20 A-350/1000 aircraft. This model will be a new airplane type in carrier’s fleet.

The airline currently operates more than 450 Airbus airplanes from all of its product families from the A-220 to the A-350/900, with more than 200 additional on order.
 Once added to the fleet, Delta will benefit from the A-350/1000’s operational efficiency, which results in reduced fuel burn and emissions and lower operating and maintenance costs.
 The A-350 is the widebody aircraft and the long range reference in the 300-410 seater category, flying efficiently on any sector from short-haul to ultra-long-haul routes up to 9,700nm. Its clean sheet design includes state-of-the-art technologies, aerodynamics, lightweight materials and latest generation engines that together deliver advantage in fuel burn, operating costs and CO2 emissions, as well as noise footprint reduction.
The model has more than 1,206 orders from 58 customers from around the world.
