Delta Airlines has taken delivery of its first Airbus A330-900neo aircraft.
The aircraft, one of 35 on order for the airline, is registered N401DZ. It was flown from Toulouse to its Atlanta, GA, base on 23 May.
Delta was the launch customer for the A330-900, ordering 25 in November 2014 and an additional 10 last year. With the addition of the A330-900, Delta is now operating both of Airbus’ newest wide-body models. It has 13 A350-900s in its fleet with another 12 on order.
Delta will initially base its A330-900s at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, where it will operate the aircraft on flights to Shanghai, Seoul and Tokyo Narita.
