Delta is continuing to take deliveries of its brand new Airbus A220 planes — and they’re headed all over the country. With 90 of these new planes on the way by 2023, these aircraft will eventually become a staple in Delta’s fleet. The A220 is replacing less fuel efficient regional and smaller narrowbody planes.
Update: Delta has scheduled its first transcontinental route with the A220 with a once daily service between Atlanta and Seattle. That route is set to begin on June 8, 2020. While a larger aircraft usually serves these two Delta hubs, the timing caters to local Atlanta passengers. From Atlanta, it is an early morning departure and a late evening return.
As Delta takes delivery of more of these planes, it’s likely there will be routes that are missed from the list below. However, Delta makes it easy to see what plane you are on — they even have a specific designation called “new aircraft” in the booking process.

Delta’s Airbus A220 Features
The A220 is a customer-friendly aircraft. We’re talking gate-to-gate Wi-Fi, some of the widest economy seats around, and even a window in the spacious lavatory. Nope, no contorting to use the bathroom here.
Delta’s version of the A220 has a total of 109 seats, including 12 first class seats, 15 Comfort+ seats, and 82 economy seats. It features seatback entertainment at every seat and high-speed Gogo 2Ku Wi-Fi. Seats in economy are an impressive 18.6″ wide, making them the widest economy seats of any narrowbody.
As Delta continues to take delivery of the A220, there will be even more new routes that be flown on this fantastic plane. While this list includes the routes where an A220 will fly, not all flights are operated by this plane so it’s important to pay attention to the specific aircraft when booking. Also, aircraft swaps are always possible.
All of these flights above are now bookable so if you wanted the chance to try the new bird, get going. We’ll try to continuously update this list as new routes with the A220 are announced.
