Delta introduced last week their first Airbus A220-100. There is a cool video of the plane being painted in Mirabel, Quebec on Delta’s Newsroom. “The painting process took nine days, 200 rolls of masking tape and 165 gallons of paint to complete.”

Delta will be first U.S. airline to take delivery of the A220, formerly known as the “C Series,” which will feature a state-of-the art interior and best-in-class fuel performance.

Delta’s first A220 is scheduled to begin service in early 2019.

Per Delta’s Newsroom:

Delta’s first Airbus A220-100 saw the light of day this week after rolling out of the paint shop at the A220 assembly line in Mirabel, Quebec.

Larry Cato, a program manager on Delta’s Fleet Management team, was onsite for the occasion. “There’s nothing like seeing years of planning come together in the shape of a freshly painted aircraft,” Cato said. “It’s a major milestone for the future of our fleet.”

The painting process took nine days, 200 rolls of masking tape and 165 gallons of paint to complete.
