The American airline is increasing its order for Airbus A220s by 30 aircraft. Jetblue now tops the list of A220’s largest customers – ahead of another airline from the USA.
Ordered in 2018 JetBlue Airways not only 60 Airbus A220. The American airline also secured options for another 60 aircraft. This made it its first customer after Airbus acquired the C-Series from Bombardier and named it the A220.
In 2019, the airline converted 10 options to firm orders, bringing the total to 70 A220-300s on order. On Tuesday (February 15), Jetblue said it was converting 30 more options. The airline is the first customer to order 100 Airbus A220 planes.
Airbus breaks the limit of 700 aircraft on demand
To date, JetBlue has already received eight aircraft. “We’ve had two-fold increases in customer satisfaction rates,” says Robin Hayes, the airline’s president, who also praises the Airbus A220’s fuel efficiency. The 30 additional copies made it possible to phase out the Embraer E190 more quickly, the airline wrote.
With the new order, Airbus has surpassed the 700 firm order limit for the A220, including orders from the C-Class era. The smaller A220-100 represents only 102 models, while the A220-300 now accounts for 618. By the end of January 2022, deliveries have already been made. 52 A220-100 and 143 A220-300.
