Delta Air Lines and Airbus have announced that the North American carrier exercises purchase rights for a total of twelve additional Airbus A220-300 aircraft.

Just one day ago, the airline ordered 100 Boeing 737 Max 10 jets, with options for another 30 airplanes. Both orders were announced during the Farnborough Airshow 2022.

Delta took delivery of its first Airbus A220 in October 2018 and was the first U.S. carrier to operate the aircraft type.

Right now, Delta has eleven 130-seat A220-300s in service and an additional 51 on order, including the new announcement. Furthermore, the airline currently operates a fleet of 45 A220-100 aircraft that are equipped with 109-seat. Additionally, Delta has Airbus A320 family jets, A330s and A350-900 aircraft in its fleet.
