Delta Air Lines has announced plans to purchase 40 Airbus aircraft for delivery between 2015 and 2017. The order, which comprises 10 international widebody A330-300 and 30 domestic narrow-bodied A321 jets, is the latest step in Delta’s fleet renewal programme. It is the first time that the airline has ordered Airbus aircraft for 20 years.
Delta will be the first airline to operate the latest A330-300, which offers additional payload capacity and range. Delta will use the aircraft’s versatility to optimise its Pacific and Atlantic networks. The A330 will feature 34 full flat-bed seats with direct aisle access in BusinessElite, 32 extra-legroom seats in Economy Comfort and 227 Economy seats. The aircraft will feature in-flight wi-fi and industry leading in-flight entertainment with a library of more than 1,000 on-demand options, and very modern interiors with LED lighting, and extra-capacity overhead bins.
Delta’s first three A321s are scheduled for delivery in the first quarter of 2016, with 12 more due in that year. The remaining 15 jets are scheduled for 2017. The 321s will have 20 First Class seats, 22 extra-legroom seats in Economy Comfort and 148 seats in the Economy cabin. In-flight wi-fi, industry leading in-flight entertainment with live satellite TV and on-demand options are provided. www.delta.com
