Breeze Airways’ first Airbus A220-300 has been painted pending the first delivery.
Airbus made this announcement:
Breeze Airways has confirmed 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 A220-300s, the first of which will be delivered in the fourth quarter of 2021.
The aircraft’s fresh paint job was completed at Airbus’ facility in Mobile, Alabama, which will deliver approximately one A220 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.
Breeze started airline operations in May 2021. This first A220 is the first new aircraft that will be operated by the airline.
Over 170 A220s have been delivered to ten operators in Asia, North Americas, Europe, and Africa, proving the great versatility of Airbus’ latest family member.
