Breeze Confirms Larger Order With Airbus

The New Airline’s First Ever Flight Will Be In The A220

Breeze Airways reveals that it has reached a purchase agreement with Airbus for 20 more of the Airbus A220-300.

This brings the total number of the aircraft to 80, which are expected to be delivered by the end of the year.

Airbus plans to deliver one aircraft per month to Breeze over the next six-and-a-half years, and the airline plans to begin flying with the new aircraft mid 2022. Breeze plans to provide nonstop service between underserved routes across the U.S. at affordable fares.

The airline started its operations in May 2021. This first A220 is the first new aircraft that will be operated by the airline.

The A220 was specifically designed and purpose-built for the 120-160 seat market and brings together state-of-the-art aerodynamics, advanced materials and Pratt & Whitney’s latest-generation PW1500G geared turbofan engines. The aircraft are being completed at Airbus’ facility in Mobile, Alabama.

The A220 features a 50% reduced noise footprint and up to 25% lower fuel burn per seat compared to previous generation aircraft, as well as around 50% lower NOx emissions than industry standards, the A220 is a great aircraft for urban operations.

So far, over 170 A220s were delivered across the world in Asia, North America, Europe and Africa.

To help with a seamless training transition for flight crews, as well as cost efficiency, both members of the A220 family share commonality in more than 99% of the line-replaceable units, as well as the same family of engines.
