Our Fleet – New Arrivals for 2018
Delta has been replacing inefficient, older technology airplanes generating substantial cost improvement and increased customer satisfaction.
Since 2009, Delta has retired 280 50-seat regional jets and more than 130 older, narrowbody aircraft, while refreshing its fleet with over 300 aircraft.
What to expect from Delta’s 75 new aircrafts from Bombardier:
Advanced technology and composite materials designed to deliver an expected 20 percent improvement in fuel
efficiency over similar sized aircraft.
Reduced noise and emissions of the C Series aligns with Delta’s broader goal to reduce the airline’s environmental footprint.
Bombardier’s all-new, lightweight mainline aircraft will be deployed on short- to medium-haul routes throughout
Delta’s network starting Spring 2018.
The CS100 features:
- State-of-the-art interior
- The largest windows in the single-aisle market
- Full-spectrum ambient lighting
- Seatback in-flight entertainment
- In-flight Wi-Fi
- High-capacity overhead bins
- Among the widest seats of any narrow body aircraft
Delta’s newest flagship aircraft
The long-range Airbus A350 will continue Delta’s optimization of its Pacific network, operating primarily on long-range routes between the U.S. and Asia. Its first flight will take place on Oct. 30, 2017, from Detroit to Narita.
The state-of-the-art wide body jets are expected to generate a 20 percent improvement in operating cost per seat compared to the Boeing 747-400 aircraft they will replace
