JetBlue signs MoU for 60 A-220/300 planes
And it converts 25 orders for A-320neo into A-321neo
JetBlue today became the first customer for the newly-rebranded Airbus A-220 aircraft, signing a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) for 60 firm orders for the larger A-220/300 model. In addition, the airline converted 25 of its current orders for A-320neo aircraft into orders for the larger A-321neo. The carrier’s A-321neos and A-220s will be powered by Pratt & Whitney GTF engines.
Complementing the A-320 Family, the A-220/100 and A-220/300 models cover the segment between 100 and 150 seats and offer a five-abreast cabin. The type will serve a worldwide market for smaller single-aisle airliners, estimated at around 6,000 such aircraft over the next 20 years. Airbus manufactures, markets and supports A-220 aircraft under the recently finalized “C Series Aircraft Limited Partnership” (CSALP) agreement.
