Delta Air Lines orders 20 Airbus A350-1000 widebody aircraft


Delta Air Lines is actively expanding its fleet, having placed an order for 20 widebody Airbus A350-1000 aircraft. 

The A350-1000 will be the largest aircraft in Delta’s fleet, marking a significant step in the airline’s international growth. 

“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,” said Ed Bastian, Delta’s Chief Executive Officer. 

Delta already operates 450 Airbus aircraft and was the first US airline to operate the A350-900 aircraft. 

“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 at Airbus.  

In 2023, the aircraft manufacturer delivered 64 A350 family aircraft, compared to 60 the previous year. It currently has a backlog of over 1,206 orders from 58 customers worldwide.
