It currently owns a total of 415 Airbus. This single -aisle 130-seat aircraft features 12 First Class, 30 Comfort+, and 88 Main Cabin seats.
As per the reports, it is the fourth reorder by Delta in four years. These Airbus A220 flights in Delta’s fleet will connect passengers on more than 100 routes. Moreover, the engine is powered by Pratt and Whiteney’s latest generation Turbofan GTF engines, which ensure 25% less fuel and Co2 emissions and a range of up to 3,450 nm, reinforcing Delta’s commitment to sustainability.
