Endeavor Airís CRJ900

On 10 December Bombardier Aerospace delivered the first CRJ900 NextGen regional jet to Delta Air Lines’ subsidiary Endeavor Air.
The aircraft is the first of 40 on order for Delta, all of which will be operated by Endeavor Air under the Delta Connection brand. The order also includes options for 30 additional CRJ900 NextGen aircraft.

“We are excited [that] Endeavor Air will be operating these new CRJ900 NextGen aircraft and look forward to working with Bombardier on the delivery of the remaining aircraft,” said Ryan Gumm, President and Chief Executive Officer, Endeavor Air. “Two-class CRJ aircraft are an important part of our go-forward fleet strategy as Delta continues upgrading aircraft to reflect the in-flight experience our customers prefer.”

Delta Connection carriers currently operate more than 190 CRJ700 dual-class aircraft, and a total CRJ aircraft fleet of more than 400 jets.

Bombardier has so far recorded firm orders for 1,779 CRJ Series aircraft, including 306 CRJ900 and CRJ900 NextGen aircraft. CRJs are now in service with more than 60 airlines and are operating in over 50 countries on six continents.

According to the manufacturer, on average a CRJ aircraft takes off every 10 seconds somewhere in the world.  www.delta.com
