Delta goes big on aircraft orders at Farnborough


At this week’s Farnborough Airshow, Delta Air Lines firmed up orders for 12 A220-300 aircraft, bringing Delta’s total firm order for the A220 to 107 aircraft – 45 A220-100s and 62 A220-300s. The airline also signed an order for 100 Boeing 737-10 jets –the largest member of the 737 MAX family – with options for an additional 30 airplanes.

Delta has also contracted with Boeing Global Services for a full interior reconfiguration of 29 Next Generation 737-900ERs in its fleet. This deal will support having these airplanes ready to enter Delta Air Lines’ 2025 summer schedule with fully refreshed interiors.

Delta took delivery of its first Airbus A220 in October 2018, and was the first US carrier to operate the aircraft type, purpose-built for the 100-150 seat market. As of the end of June 2022, Delta operates a fleet of 388 Airbus aircraft, including 56 A220s, 249 A320 Family aircraft, 57 A330s and 26 A350-900s.
