Delta Air Lines has confirmed it plans to add 20 Embraer E-190s and 20 737-900ERs to its fleet.

The agreement is part of the Atlanta-based airline’s strategy to improve efficiency by adding additional 737-900ERs and E-190 jets while reducing the use of small regional aircraft.

In a statement released on Wednesday (December 16), Delta said the order offered “more compelling economics” over a previously cancelled order that also included Boeing-held E-190s.

Greg May, Delta’s senior vice-president – supply chain management, said: “This aircraft order is another example of Delta’s unique fleet strategy to deploy a mix of new and used aircraft, maintain low capital costs, and leverage significant capacity flexibility to produce superior returns for our shareholders.”
