Delta Air Lines (DAL) plans to move forward with its order for 100 Boeing 737 Max 10 aircraft, CNBC reported Friday, citing Delta CEO Ed Bastian.
Delta ordered the aircraft in 2022 and deliveries are expected to begin in 2025, the report said.
The Max 10 is the largest model of Boeing 737 and has still not received approval from regulators, according to the report.
Boeing is facing issues related to the Max 9 aircraft as it was grounded by the Federal Aviation Administration following an incident on an Alaska Airlines flight on Jan. 5.
“We certainly will not take them ’til we have 1,000% confidence that that plane is fully secure, fully safe and…everyone has signed off to that,” Bastian told CNBC.
Delta and Boeing did not immediately respond to MT Newswires’ requests for comment.
Delta shares were down nearly 3.2% in recent Friday trading.
