Based on the list price for the CRJ900 aircraft, the firm order is valued at approximately US$961 million.

“We are thrilled that Delta continues to select the CRJ Series as the airline looks into the future growth of its regional operations,” said Fred Cromer, president, Bombardier Commercial Aircraft. “Together with Delta, we have driven the development of regional aviation in the U.S., and we are looking forward to further enhancing regional air travel with the launch of the new Atmosphere cabin with our long-standing and esteemed customer.”

The new CRJ900 aircraft with Atmosphere cabin will fly under the Delta Connection brand in a two-class regional jet configuration with 70 seats.

Delta Air Lines will take delivery of the world’s first Atmosphere cabin CRJ900 aircraft in late 2018.

The Atmosphere cabin design allows each passenger to carry and store an “oversized” roller bag within the aircraft cabin bins which minimizes the need to check bags at the counter or the gate.
