Delta Air Lines said Tuesday it had agreed to purchase 29 used Boeing 737-900ERs and to lease seven used Airbus A350-900s as part of a fleet replenishment program.

The airline retired approximately 200 older aircraft amidst the coronavirus pandemic-induced decline in travel in 2020.

“These aircraft are an investment in Delta’s future,” Chief Executive Officer Ed Bastian said in a statement.

The Atlanta-based carrier expects deliveries of the planes to be complete by the first quarter of 2022.

The aircraft are more fuel efficient than the ones they replace.
