LONDON – Delta has completed their first Airbus A321NEO flight from Boston Longan. The aircraft operated a flight to San Francisco on Friday morning. The aircraft replaced the Boeing 757 that was usually operating this route.
“Delta’s A321neo product will deliver a superior premium travel experience for our customers in Boston and around the country,” said Mahendra Nair, Delta’s S.V.P. – Fleet and TechOps Supply Chain. “The introduction of this state-of-the-art, more fuel-efficient aircraft to our fleet is also an important commitment on our Flight to Net Zero, our journey to decarbonize aviation.”
Boston’s Number 1 Airline
The A321 NEO forms part of Delta’s expansion plans at Boston. The carrier already offers the most seats and flights out of all the carriers serving the airport. This summer, the airline plans to operate more flights than pre-pandemic levels. 150 daily nonstop flights will operate, to over 50 destinations.
Additionally, Delta will be adding five new destinations to the Boston Route network:
- Tel Aviv
