Delta orders 75 firm Bombardier CS100s

Bombardier Commercial Aircraft and Delta Air Lines have executed a firm agreement for the sale and purchase of 75 CS100 aircraft with options for an additional 50 CS100s, although Delta may elect to convert a number of these aircraft into CS300 at a later date.Deliveries are scheduled to begin in spring 2018.“As we reshape our fleet for the future, the innovative onboard experience of the C Series is a perfect complement for the top-notch service provided every day by Delta people,” explained Ed Bastian, Delta's incoming chief executive. “These new aircraft are a solid investment, allowing us to take advantage of superior operating economics, network flexibility and best-in-class fuel performance.”“Welcoming Delta Air Lines to the C Series family of operators is a watershed moment for our game-changing aircraft,” declared Fred Cromer, president, Bombardier Commercial Aircraft. “As an industry leader, Delta consistently ranks first with customers, business leaders and its peers – a benchmark for operational performance. This order is a resounding endorsement of the CS100 aircraft performance and its exceptionally low operating costs. In addition, its widest aisle, widest seats and largest bins in its class will be attractive features for Delta's passengers.”
