American carrier JetBlue’s first Airbus A220 is ready to be delivered next month.
JetBlue’s first Airbus A220 is set to be delivered next month. The carrier has 70 of the -300 variant on order. JetBlue plans to take delivery of seven planes in 2021 and eight in 2022. The remaining aircrafts will be delivered in the coming years.
Speaking to Routesonline, COO Joanna Geraghty said,“Our A220s will naturally have a heavy presence in Boston as it’s one of our biggest E190 footprints today. But the aircraft can do a lot more than the E190 can, which is part of the reasons why we ordered it. We will be able to fly longer stages with a higher utilisation. So you can expect to see us go further within the continent and touch more places.”.
The airline’s A220s will feature a new tail livery known as “Hops”(pictured above).
