As the US launch customer, Delta’s firm order allows the company to cost-efficiently renovate and enlarge its narrow body fleet, providing an improved customer experience and fuel efficiency while maintaining focus on using its capital prudently.
The order is part of Delta’s domestic strategy to enlarge the fleet to achieve its long term financial targets while replacing not efficient domestic aircraft. Because of this order, Delta will no longer introduce the Embraer E190 into its fleet as planned. 

Powered by Pratt & Whitney’s latest geared turbofan, the PW1500G, the CS100 takes advantage of advanced technology and composite materials expected to deliver 20% improvement in fuel efficiency over similar sized aircraft.

The aircraft will start entering service with delta in spring 2018.
