Delta Air Lines has firmed up an order for a dozen more Airbus A220-300 aircraft, bringing the airline’s total firm order for A220s to 119 aircraft: 45 A220-100s and 74 A220-300s .Throughout the years, Delta has reordered the A220 four times and is today the largest A220 customer and operator.

Delta took delivery of its first Airbus A220 in October 2018 and was the first U.S. carrier to operate the aircraft type. Delta currently owns a fleet of 415 Airbus aircraft, including 59 A220 aircraft, 266 A320 family aircraft, 62 A330s, and 28 A350-900 aircraft.

With 246 A220s delivered to 16 airlines operating on four continents, the A220 offers operational flexibility for regional and long-distance routes. As of the end of December 2022, some 30 customers have ordered close to 800 A220 aircraft.

Two days after the Delta announcement, Airbus officials announced that Uzbekistan Airways, the national carrier of the Republic of Uzbekistan, placed a firm order for 12 Airbus A320neo family aircraft (eight A320neo and four A321neo). The new aircraft will join the carrier’s current fleet of 17 Airbus A320 family aircraft. The choice of the engines will be made by the airline at a later stage.

The A320neo family has more than 8,600 orders from more than 130 customers.
