Airbus delivers first A330neo to Delta Air Lines
May 27, 2019: European aircraft manufacturer Airbus has recently delivered A330-900 aircraft to Delta Air Lines.
The Atlanta-based airline took delivery of its first A330-900, one of 35 A330neos the airline has on order. Delta was the launch customer for the A330-900, ordering 25 in November 2014 and an additional 10 last year.
The addition of this widebody jet makes Delta the operator of both of Airbus’ newest widebody models. It has 13 A350-900s in its fleet with another 12 on order.
With new fuel-efficient engines, aerodynamic improvements, and the advanced Airspace by Airbus cabin the A330-900 will give Delta a premier long-haul, widebody aircraft with exceptionally low operating costs.
Delta will initially base its A330-900s at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, where it will operate the aircraft on flights to Shanghai, Seoul and Tokyo Narita. Delta will configure its A330-900s for 281 passengers, including 29 in business-class suites, 28 in premium economy, 56 in extra-legroom economy seats, and 168 in standard economy. The aircraft will feature Delta's new internally developed in-flight entertainment system.
The A330neo is a true new-generation aircraft, building on the features of the popular A330 features and leveraging technology developed for the A350 XWB technology.
The A330-900 can accommodate 287 seats in a typical three-class layout or up to 440 for high-density configurations with a range of up to 7,200 nautical miles.
Delta operates more than 265 Airbus aircraft including A321s and A220s, and the airline’s order backlog with Airbus exceeds 270 including 100 A321neos.
