The A220 was designed with one goal in mind, savings for operators. With 25% lower operating cost per seat compared to previous generation aircraft, the A220’s clean-sheet design has delivered an efficient, versatile and profitable aircraft for operators.


Clean-sheet aircraft  

Extensive use of composites and other advanced materials make the A220 lighter. Simplified and highly digital systems bring the aircraft weight down, while improving reliability and maintenance. Combined with the latest aerodynamic design and new generation ultra-high bypass PW1500 GTF engines, the A220 brings unbeatable efficiency without compromising on capability or comfort.


Lower Fuel Burn And Cost Per Seat 3
Designed for the future

The A220 is the low-risk, versatile solution for airlines to rebuild and easily adapt to new levels of demand as the markets slowly open up again in a post-Covid world. 

Purpose-built for flexible operations, the A220 enables airlines to right-size their seat capacity for the right routes, while reducing fuel burn and CO2 emissions by 25%. 

The A220 Family has been designed to be an even better neighbour by also reducing its noise footprint by 50% compared to previous generation aircraft and its NOx emissions are 50% below industry CAEP/6 standards.    


The Airbus A220 represents a perfect fit for our narrow-body fleet. Leveraging its favourable economics including its approximately 25 per cent reduction in fuel consumption per seat, it allows us to look at new markets that were too small for our historical fleet. The A220 will also play a critical role in our recovery.
