Fleet Renewal: Delta Orders 30 Additional Airbus A321neos
Delta is continuing to refresh and upgrade its fleet, adding 30 incremental A321neo aircraft to its existing order book with Airbus.
This transaction further positions the airline as a leader in the recovery, and beyond, with its cutting-edge, reliable and lower-emissions fleet, while reinforcing Delta’s strategic fleet objectives to boost operational simplification, achieve economies of scale and drive productivity.
The A321neo is powered by next-generation Pratt & Whitney PW1100G turbofan engines, which achieve 12% better fuel efficiency on a per-seat basis than the A321ceo aircraft. The engines will be maintained by Delta TechOps technicians at its advanced maintenance, repair, and overhaul facilities in Atlanta.
Delta’s A321neos will be equipped with total seating for 194 customers with 20 in First Class, 42 in Delta Comfort+ and 132 in Main Cabin. The new aircraft will be deployed across Delta’s extensive domestic network, complementing Delta’s existing Airbus A321ceo fleet of 121 aircraft.
The A321neos’ comfortable interior will feature thoughtful touches throughout, including new First Class seating design that includes a larger and sturdier tray table, more stowage space for personal items, and enhanced memory foam cushions.
Customers will enjoy Delta’s wireless In-Flight Entertainment system created by Delta’s wholly-owned subsidiary, Delta Flight Products, at every seat, spacious overhead bins, and state-of-the-art HEPA cabin air filtration systems as well as access to Wi-Fi and power ports.
