Delta Air Lines has placed an order for 100 state-of-the-art A321neo Airbus Cabin Flex configuration (ACF) aircraft.
The selection is projected to meet Delta’s future requirements for aircraft with greater efficiency and additional capacity.
Commenting on the 240-capacity passenger planes, Delta CEO, Ed Bastian, says: “This is the right transaction at the right time for our customers, our employees and our shareholders,” adding that “Delta, Airbus and Pratt & Whitney share the same commitment to safety, efficiency, innovation and continuously improving the customer experience.”
Equally delighted to supply the orders for the 100 aircraft is Tom Enders, Airbus Chief Executive Officer. An ecstatic Enders says: “We at Airbus are very happy we won this hotly-contested campaign, together with our partner Pratt, and we are proud to serve Delta with the A321neo.
This important order will further strengthen our partnership with Delta – one of the world’s best airlines – which we have developed over many years.”
