Delta’s New Airbus A321neo Aircraft Set to Take Off
Delta customers will soon begin seeing the first routes to feature the airline’s new Airbus A321neo aircraft.
The experience-rich, fuel-efficient narrowbody jet arrived in Atlanta last week, and beginning tomorrow, customers may purchase tickets on the first flights the aircraft is designated to operate.
A321neo flights are set to depart from Delta's hub at Boston Logan International, bound for San Francisco, Seattle, San Diego and Denver. The new aircraft will first depart for San Francisco on May 20 and then debut on existing flights to Seattle beginning August 11.
Delta will continue to take delivery of additional A321neos through the fall, and those new aircraft will also serve San Diego and Denver from Boston (new routes that launch July 11) starting 20 August 2022.
Delta’s A321neos will be equipped with total seating for 194 customers with 20 in First Class, 42 in Delta Comfort+ and 132 in the Main Cabin. The new aircraft will be deployed primarily across Delta’s extensive domestic network, complementing the Airbus A321ceo fleet of more than 125 aircraft.
The aircraft’s comfortable cabin configuration features thoughtful touches throughout, including a new, domestic First Class seat design with larger, improved privacy space, a sturdier tray table, and more stowage space for personal items, as well as enhanced memory-foam seat cushions in all cabins.
Customers can enjoy Delta’s industry-leading seatback entertainment on board, with the airline introducing an expanded library of content on new delivery A321neos with 50 percent more hit movies, TV shows and music than other aircraft in its fleet.
Access to fast-streaming Wi-Fi and power ports are available at each seat, along with spacious overhead bins and state-of-the-art HEPA cabin air filtration systems throughout.
Delta’s newest fleet also helps to reinforce the company’s position as an industry leader in environmental sustainability. Powered by Pratt & Whitney GTF™ engines, the A321neo offers 20% better fuel efficiency over Delta’s current A321ceos.
