Reuters: Breeze Airways boosts its Airbus A220 jet order

From Reuters:

“Breeze Airways, a new U.S. carrier founded by airline backer David Neeleman, has expanded its growth plans with an additional order for 20 Airbus A220-300 jets, industry sources said.

Bringing the startup’s total order for the jet to 80, the deal would make Breeze the second-biggest customer for the Canadian-designed A220 family after Delta Air Lines.”

Breeze Airways will operate a mixed Airbus and Embraer fleet.

The Embraers (below) are currently assisting in the AOC process. The new airline is expected to announce its first routes shortly.
