Delta Air Lines will be the first U.S. airline to operate the A220 – at the same time becoming the fourth A220 operator, after Swiss International Air Lines, airBaltic, and Korean Air.

Delta is the largest A220-100 customer, with a firm order for 75 aircraft.

Delta’s first A220 is scheduled to begin service in early 2019.
