Boeing Delivers First Next-Generation 737-900ER To Delta Air Lines

Fuel-Efficient Next-Generation 737-900ER Supports Delta's Fleet Renewal

Boeing and Delta Air Lines celebrated the delivery of the carrier's first Next-Generation 737-900ER (Extended Range). The delivery is part of Delta's 100-airplane order placed in 2011 to renew its single-aisle fleet with more fuel-efficient airplanes. "We have been looking forward to celebrating this delivery with Delta and are proud to see the Next-Generation 737-900ER join its fleet," said John Wojick, senior vice president of Global Sales, Boeing Commercial Airplanes. "The 737-900ER is a great fit for Delta's fleet. It provides best-in-class efficiency, economics, reliability and passenger comfort that Delta needs for its fleet renewal initiative."

The Boeing 737-900ER is the newest member of the Next-Generation 737 airplane family. It has the highest capacity and lowest seat-mile cost of Boeing's single-aisle family. The 737-900ER will fit seamlessly into Delta's existing fleet of 737-700 and 737-800 airplanes, allowing Delta to efficiently match capacity to market demand with industry leading economics.

Delta's new 737-900ER seats 180 passengers and features the new Boeing Sky Interior. This interior is the latest in a series of enhancements for both airlines and passengers. It introduces new LED lighting and curved architecture that welcomes passengers onboard and creates a greater sense of spaciousness and comfort in the cabin. The interior also features modern, sculpted sidewalls and overhead bins that disappear into the ceiling, yet carry more bags.
