Delta orders 20 replacement CRJ900s
Delta Air Lines has ordered 20 Bombardier CRJ900s to replace older regional jets in its feeder fleet.
The aircraft will have 70 seats and come equipped with the Canadian airframer's Atmosphere cabin, says the US carrier. Deliveries will begin later this year and run through 2020.
Bombardier says the deal is worth USD 961 million at list prices.
Atlanta-based Delta does not say what regional aircraft the CRJ900s will replace nor which Delta Connection carrier will operate them. However, they are likely to replace either Bombardier CRJ700s or Embraer 170s which, with 69 seats, are comparably sized to the 70-seat CRJ900s.
