Delta's Airbus A220 Enters Service

Delta's newest narrowbody jet, the state-of-the-art Airbus A220-100, has officially entered service.

The aircraft's first commercial flight was between New York's LaGuardia airport and Boston Logan Int. Airport.

"We have big plans for this aircraft," said Chuck Imhof, Vice President New York and Sales, East. "It will be an integral part of our future domestic fleet and will deliver an experience our customers will look forward to every time they fly."

- 109 seats total, including seating for 12 in First Class, 15 in Delta Comfort+ and 82 in Main Cabin;

I have been with Delta for 34 years, and was in awe the first time I saw the A220. Customers will love it its a spectacular plane, said Damian Atchison, DFW-based Above Wing Customer Service Agent.

Delta took delivery of its first A220 in October 2018, and recently announced an order for 15 additional A220s, extending its order book to 90 total aircraft.

Delta is only the fourth airline in the world to operate the already much-loved Airbus A220. The other airlines are airBaltic, Korean Air and Swiss. The A220 was previously called the Bombardier C Series and and comprises the A220-100 (CS100) and A220-300 (CS300).
