Breeze Airways reveals new A-220 aircraft livery
And it confirms order for 20 additional airplanes from Mobile Final Assembly Line
Breeze Airways has revealed its new A-220/300 livery, while confirming that it has reached a purchase agreement with Airbus for 20 more of the aircraft. This previously undisclosed order for 20 brings Breeze’s total order book to 80 A-220/300s, the first of which will be delivered in Q4 2021.
The aircraft’s fresh paint job was completed at Airbus’ facility in Mobile, Alabama, which will deliver approximately one A-220 per month to Breeze over the next six-and-a-half years. The airline plans to begin flights with the Airbus fleet in the second quarter of 2022.
The carrier started its operations in May 2021 and this A-220 is the first new aircraft that will be operated by the airline.
The A-220 is the airplane purpose-built for the 100-150 seat market and brings together state-of-the-art aerodynamics, advanced materials and Pratt & Whitney’s latest-generation PW1500G geared turbofan engines.
Over 170 units have been delivered to ten operators in Asia, North Americas, Europe, and Africa, proving the great versatility of Airbus’ latest family member.
