Delta Air Lines has placed an order for an additional 37 A321ceo aircraft and has chosen the CFM56-5B engine option to power the jets.

The A321 order is earmarked to replace some of Delta’s older narrowbodies including the MD-88 and delivery of the new aircraft will begin in 2017 through to 2019.

The agreement also includes a five-year material support contract for the CFM56-5B/-7B engines in the Delta fleet, adding to the 126 CFM International engines powering its A319 and A320 aircraft.

The order for the Airbus narrowbody and the CFM engines follows the Atlanta-based carrier confirming on Thursday (April 29) that it had committed to 125 CSeries aircraft from Bombardier.
