Delta Air Lines Airbus A321neo lifts off on inaugural flight from Boston


The latest addition to Delta’s fleet, the A321neo, lifted off from Boston Logan International Airport Friday morning, bound for San Francisco International Airport. Customers on the inaugural flight were the first to experience an improved cabin experience throughout – including an industry-leading domestic First Class seat – and flew with confidence that their trans-continental journey is more fuel-efficient.


Delta’s A321neo product will deliver a superior premium travel experience for our customers in Boston and around the country,” said Mahendra Nair, Delta’s S.V.P. – Fleet and TechOps Supply Chain. “The introduction of this state-of-the-art, more fuel-efficient aircraft to our fleet is also an important commitment on our Flight to Net Zero, our journey to decarbonize aviation.

In addition to San Francisco, Delta will operate A321neo flights between Delta’s hub at Boston Logan International bound for San Diego (SAN) and Denver (DEN) starting July 11, and on select trips to Seattle (SEA) beginning July 20.

Delta has purchase commitments for a total of 155 A321neos and is scheduled to take delivery of these aircraft through 2027, many from the Airbus U.S. Manufacturing Facility in Mobile, Alabama. Delta now has 233 new aircraft purchase commitments, including both widebody and narrowbody jets – reinforcing Delta’s strategic fleet objectives to boost operational simplification and drive productivity.
