Delta Air Lines added 10 A330-900neo aircraft to its previous order of 25 to 35. The A330-900neos powered by Rolls Royce engines will be delivered from late 2019 onwards.
Simultaneously, Delta reduced its near-term A350-900 purchase commitment to a total of 15 aircraft from 25. The 10 previously on order A350 aircraft have been deferred to 2025-26 with certain flexibility rights including the right to convert these orders to A330-900s.
Delta currently operates 11 A350-900 aircraft and expects to take delivery of two A350s in 2019 and two in 2020.
In addition, Delta plans to retire older Boeing 767-300ERs in the years ahead as the aircraft reach the end of their serviceable life cycle.
