Airbus has won an order from Delta Air Lines for 50 new wide-body aircraft, raising the European manufacturer's total order backlog with the airline to 105.

Airbus will provide 25 Airbus A330neo aircraft powered by Rolls-Royce Trent 7000 engines and 25 A350-900 aircraft powered by Trent XWB engines. This is in addition to current orders for 10 A330-300s and 45 A321ceo aircraft.

John Leahy, Airbus's Chief Operating Officer for Customers, hailed the new order as "a massive endorsement" of the company's product line. Delta Air Lines currently flies both single-aisle and widebody Airbus aircraft, including 57 A319ceo aircraft, 69 A320ceo aircraft, 11 A330-200s, and 21 A330-300s.

Airbus describes the A350-900 as the "cornerstone member" of its A350 XWB Family, which as of the end of October has won 750 orders from 39 customers worldwide. The A330 family of aircraft have secured a total of 1,300 orders, from 100 operators worldwide.
