Delta buying Airbus A350-900, A330-900neo to replace Boeing 747, 767

Delta Air Lines is buying Airbus A350-900 and A330-900neo to replace its older generation Boeing 747 and 767 aircraft starting in 2017 and 2019.

The order for 25 Airbus A350-900 aircraft and 25 Airbus A330-900neo aircraft fits within Delta’s existing capacity and capital expenditure plan and continues the airline’s focus on making prudent, cost-effective investments in its fleet.

“Delta always approaches fleet decisions with a balance of economic efficiency, customer experience enhancements, network integration and total cost of ownership,” Nat Pieper, Delta’s Vice President – Fleet Strategy and Transactions, said in a news release. “The A350 and A330neo support our long-haul, transoceanic strategy and join a mix of Boeing and Airbus aircraft that provide exceptional flexibility for Delta’s global network as well as strong cash-on-cash returns for our shareholders.”
