Delta Air Lines received it’s 20th Airbus A220-300 this week, via a delivery flight between Mobile and Minneapolis.
The carrier continues to bolster it’s fleet with this variant of aircraft, with plenty more on the way in the years to come.
Without further ado, let’s get into it…
From Mobile to Minneapolis: Delta Receives 20th Airbus A220-300…
Delta flight DL9936 departed Mobile, Alabama at 1149 local time on November 21, and proceeded northbound to Minneapolis.
N320DU, the aircraft in question, landed in the airline base at 1434 local time that day and at the time of writing (22/11/23), has been awaiting it’s first commercial flight. This is subject to change currently.
This airframe is #20 of the A220-300 variant. However, the carrier does have 45 of the -100 variant, of which 39 are in active service, and the other six are parked, as per data from Planespotters.net.
This means in total, Delta has received 65 Airbus A220 aircraft so far. Mobile and Minneapolis are set to continue receiving deliveries, with the airline having 131 on the orderbook, meaning another 66 units are yet to be delivered.
Such an orderbook makes the airline the largest operator of the type in the United States so far, with no other competitors getting near that level of jet.
All eyes will be on how the rest of the deliveries perform, as well as whether there is additional scope for the carrier to increase the orderbook further going into the future.
