Delta is the only US carrier with orders for the A330neo, an aircraft Airbus is marketing as a replacement for aging 767 fleets. American Airlines, after evaluating both the A330 and A350, opted for 22 Boeing 787-8s to replace its 767s, while United Airlines continues to look at options for its 767 fleet.
The Atlanta-based carrier has firm orders for 35 A330-900s with the first due next year, it says today. The A330neos are powered by Rolls-Royce Trent 7000 engines.
“The A330-900 is going to be an important addition to Delta’s fleet,” says Ed Bastian, chief executive of Delta. “Airbus has infused this next generation of the successful A330 family with new technology and features providing advanced levels of comfort for our passengers and significant operating cost reductions.”
The airline will use the additional A330s to meet its “near-to-medium term widebody needs”, including replacing aging Boeing 767-300ERs as they reach the end of their lives, it says.
