Delta to add ADRS drag reduction kits to its Boeing 737-800/900 fleet

Aero Design Labs (ADL) and Delta Air Lines have entered into a memorandum of understanding (MOU) solidifying their partnership to certify the Boeing 737-800 and 737-900 aircraft with Aero Design Labs ADRS drag reduction kits.

The certification program on the 737-800 is anticipated to commence in Q1, 2023, followed by the 737-900 in the second half of 2023.

The MOU provides Delta Air Lines with the option to purchase up to 211 Aero Design Labs ADRS kits.

ADL received its first STC in May 2022, for the 737-700 in conjunction with WestJet Airlines.
