Breeze Airways Expands Fleet with 10 More Airbus A220s, Aiming for All-A220 Operations by End of 2024

Herndon, USA/Mirabel, Canada, 20 February 2024 – In a gust of progressive strategy, Breeze Airways today revealed an order for an additional 10 A220-300 aircraft. This move inflates the airline’s total firm order to a whopping 90, positioning Breeze as the third largest global customer for the A220.

Benoît de Saint-Exupéry, EVP Sales, Commercial Aircraft at Airbus, was buoyant about the deal. “With its top-tier performance, the A220 is tailor-made for Breeze’s ambition to link underserved American routes directly,” he commented. “Besides delivering a superior passenger experience, the aircraft is a green champion, boasting the smallest carbon footprint in its class and a whisper-quiet noise profile.”

The A220 isn’t just a passenger pleaser; it’s a wallet and planet saver too. Capable of flying up to 3,600 nautical miles (about 6,700 kilometres), it slashes fuel burn and CO2 emissions by 25% per seat compared to its predecessors. The aircraft, a fusion of sleek aerodynamics, advanced materials, and Pratt & Whitney’s latest-generation engines, cuts noise by half and NOx emissions by 40% below industry norms. Already compatible with 50% Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF), Airbus aims to push this to 100% by 2030.

Breeze, which welcomed its first A220 in December 2021, currently operates 20 of these birds across the U.S. The airline also announced a sky-high ambition: an all-A220 fleet by the end of 2024.

With over 300 A220s delivered to 20 carriers across five continents, including a recent touchdown in Oceania, the A220 is flying high as the go-to for both regional and long-haul routes. Over 100 million passengers have experienced the A220, flying on more than 1,350 routes to over 400 destinations. To date, about 30 customers have ordered over 900 A220s, cementing its lead in the small single-aisle market. Breeze Airways, meanwhile, is set to soar into the future, riding the winds of change with its all-A220 fleet.
