Delta has published images of the interior of its first Airbus A220 aircraft, which it took delivery of last week.

The carrier said that the aircraft would “bring elements of the international travel experience that customers have enjoyed on widebody aircraft — like Delta’s flagship A350 — to domestic routes for customers to enjoy at home”.

Delta’s A220-100 features a total of 109 seats, with 12 in first class, 15 in Delta Comfort + and 82 in Main Cabin.

First class seats are configured 2-2, and according to the carrier feature “the largest IFE screens of any Delta domestic First Class seat”.

Main Cabin seats are configured 2-3, and offer an 18.6-inch seat width and personal power ports, the airline says Delta Comfort + customers can expect “more legroom and dedicated overhead bin space”.

The aircraft will also feature Gogo-powered 2Ku wifi connectivity, with free messaging via iMessage, Facebook messenger and WhatsApp.

Delta will launch the first of 75 A220s it has on order on January 31, 2019, on routes from New York’s LaGuardia airport to Boston and Dallas.

Commenting on the news Gil West, Delta’s Senior Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer said:

“As we look back at our growth over the past ten years since the Delta-Northwest merger, we reflect on the complementary strengths the two airlines brought to form a combined company that’s well positioned to continue leading the industry in decades to come.

“In many ways, the A220 represents our continued work to make flying better for everyone and represents the go-forward objectives of our fleet strategy.”

The A220-100 was formerly known as the Bombardier CS100, and was rebranded earlier this year, after Airbus took a majority stake in the C Series programme.
