Delta Ponies Up Big Bucks For 20 Airbus A350-1000s

The A350 Boasts More Than 1,206 Orders From 58 Customers 

Delta Air Lines is adding new A350-1000 airliners to its lineup... much to the approval of the folks at Airbus. The A350-1000 will be a new aircraft type in Delta’s fleet.

“We are thankful for Delta’s continued confidence in Airbus’ solutions to meet its fleet needs,” said Christian Scherer, Chief Executive Officer of the Commercial Aircraft business, Airbus. “Delta was the first U.S. airline to operate the A350-900, and is doing so with great success. Delta now welcomes the A350-1000, which will open even more opportunities for the airline and its customers. We are proud that our aircraft serve the entirety of Delta’s impressive global network as this stellar airline takes fleet efficiency to the next level.”

“The A350-1000 will be the largest, most capable aircraft in Delta’s fleet and is an important step forward for our international expansion,” said Ed Bastian, Delta’s chief executive officer. “The aircraft complements our fleet and offers an elevated customer experience, with more premium seats and best-in-class amenities, as well as expanded cargo capabilities.”

Delta Air Lines currently operates more than 450 Airbus aircraft from all of the Airbus product families from the A220 to the A350-900, with more than 200 additional on order.

Airbus claims that the A350 is the world’s most modern and efficient widebody aircraft and the long range leader in the 300-410 seater category, flying routes up to 9,700nm. The 'clean sheet design includes state-of-the-art technologies, aerodynamics, lightweight materials and latest generation engines that together deliver 25% advantage in fuel burn, operating costs and CO2 emissions, as well as 50% noise footprint reduction compared to previous generation competitor aircraft.'

The A350 has more than 1,206 orders from 58 customers from around the world.
