Delta Air Lines has placed a first order for 20 Airbus A350-1000 aircraft. These aircraft 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 Airbus Commercial Aircraft business in a press release on Friday (Jan. 12). “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,” he added.

“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 additional orders for more than 200 aircraft.

Once added to the fleet, the airline will benefit from the A350-1000’s operational efficiency, which results in reduced fuel burn and emissions and lower operating and maintenance costs, while passengers will enjoy the comfort of the Airbus Airspace cabin with its spacious and quiet cabin, wide seats, high ceilings, and customizable ambient lighting designed to reduce fatigue and jet-lag on long flights.

The A350 is a modern and efficient long-range widebody aircraft in the 300-410 seater category, with a maximum cruising range of up to 9,700nm. Its design includes state-of-the-art technologies, aerodynamics, lightweight materials, and latest-generation engines that deliver a 25% advantage in fuel burn, operating costs, and CO₂ emissions, as well as 50% noise footprint reduction compared to previous-generation aircraft in the same class.

The A350 series aircraft has more than 1,206 orders from 58 customers worldwide.
