Delta’s first A330-900neo left the Airbus paint shop in Toulouse, France, sporting its signature Delta livery.
Though at first glance, the aircraft might look ready for takeoff – a closer look reveals something major still missing: the plane’s engines, which will be painted separately and mounted in the coming days.
Once the finishing touches are complete, the A330-900neo will take to the skies for testing before being delivered to Delta later this year.
Delta will be the first North American operator of the A330-900neo, which will offer the latest in innovative design and technology for customers. Delta’s A330-900neo will feature all four branded seat products – Delta One suites, Delta Premium Select, Delta Comfort+ and Main Cabin – a move Delta is making across its widebody fleet to give customers greater choice than ever before.
This aircraft is the first of 35 next-generation A330-900neos on order by Delta and is expected to begin service later in 2019.
