Breeze Airways has unveiled the new livery for the Airbus A220-300
Breeze Airways has unveiled the new livery with which the Airbus A220-300 aircraft will be painted, confirming at the same time that it has reached an agreement with Airbus for the purchase of another 20 aircraft. This order - not previously disclosed - for another 20 aircraft brings the total portfolio of Breeze orders to 80 Airbus A220-300.
The new livery was painted on the aircraft at the Airbus facility in Mobile, Alabama. Airbus has committed to deliver an A220 aircraft a month to Breeze for the next six and a half years. The airline intends to start operating flights with the Airbus fleet in the second quarter of 2022.
The A220's superior efficiency will support the new airline's business goals of providing an excellent travel experience with low fares and high flexibility. Breeze is expected to provide non-stop services between unused routes in the US, but at much more affordable rates.
Breeze began operations in May 2021.
The Airbus A220 is the only specially built aircraft with a capacity of 100-150 seats and combines state-of-the-art aerodynamics, advanced materials and state-of-the-art PW1500G turbofan engines created by Pratt & Whitney. Benefiting from the latest technologies, the A220 is the quietest, cleanest and most environmentally friendly aircraft in its category.
With a 50% lower noise footprint and up to a 25% reduction in seat fuel consumption compared to previous generation aircraft, as well as 50% lower NOx emissions than industry standards, the A220 is an aircraft excellent for urban operations.
Over 170 Airbus A220 aircraft were delivered to ten operators in Asia, North America, Europe and Africa, demonstrating the great versatility of the latest member of the Airbus family.
