At a recent ceremony in Mirabel, Quebec, Delta became the first North American operator of the new A220. Delta Air Lines forward thinking is all part of a massive effort to transform the travel experience for the Delta customers. “The innovation, creativity and remarkable engineering skills that went into the design and production of this aircraft is simply breathtaking,” said Delta CEO Ed Bastian to an audience of Delta, Airbus and Bombardier employees gathered in Mirabel. “The A220 will serve as the cornerstone of our future domestic growth.”
Delta’s A220 is the latest investment in a fleet modernization program that aims to replace 20 percent of older, less-efficient aircraft by 2020. The A220 will bring an elevated customer experience to Delta’s top business routes with features that we will look forward to every time we fly. “We at Airbus are dedicated to providing the right products for a marketplace that needs modern, efficient and customer-friendly aircraft — and the remarkable A220 certainly delivers,” said Guillaume Faury, President of Airbus’s commercial aircraft business. “When a great airline like Delta puts a new aircraft into service, the entire industry takes note. The A220 team is gratified by the confidence that the Delta family has placed in this aircraft.”
In addition to a modern interior with a spacious, widebody feel, Delta’s A220 will feature best-in-class fuel performance. Powered by Pratt & Whitney’s latest geared turbofan PW1500G engine, the A220 takes advantage of advanced technology and composite materials designed to deliver an expected 20 percent improvement in fuel efficiency over older, similar-sized aircraft when it enters service with Delta.
Inaugural A220 flights are set to depart on Jan. 31 from New York’s LaGuardia Airport to its growing operation at Boston Logan International, and from LaGuardia to top business destination Dallas/Ft. Worth.
