Delta acquires additional A350s
During the presentation of its Q3-2021 results, Delta Air Lines announced it has acquired two addtional A350-900s. According to several aviation sites, the duo will be acquired from Avolon and are OE-IPK (226) and OE-IPX (245). Both were previously in use with South African Airways and are stored at Teruel in Spain.
The acquisition marks another expansion of the A350-fleet after the airline announced in July it was going to lease seven former LATAM A350-900s via AerCap. With this latest two, Delta will grow its fleet eventually to 44 A350-900s.
