On the last day of 2020, JetBlue took delivery of its 1st Airbus A220. Since then, both the airline and Airbus have been tight-lipped about A220’s new interior. But now, JetBlue has revealed its stunning new A220 cabin.
Inside the stunning cabin
We knew until today that JetBlue’s A220 would be fitted with 140 seats. However, we didn’t know how it would look like from the inside. Now, we don’t have to wait any longer.
The aircraft is fitted with the Collins Meridien Seats. As is the norm for an Airbus A220, the aircraft is fitted with a 2-3 configuration, making the left side perfect for couples.
The seats have a width of 18.6 inches making it the widest in JetBlue’s fleet. The front of the seat is made from vegan leather called Ultraleather. On the back of the seat, customers will find a mesh pocket for storing everything from water bottles to loose items. Also there are AC, USB-A and USB-C ports.
Every seat has a 10.1-inch high-definition screen. Each screen has access to 30 channels of DIRECTV, in addition to a huge catalog of shows and movies. Personal devices can be paired with the screen for use as a remote or a controller for games.
JetBlue is the first airline to receive an A220 with Viasat connectivity and only US carrier with free high speed Fly-Fi on every plane, providing passengers with the ability to connect an unlimited number of devices and stream, surf, or chat during the entire flight, from gate to gate.
“With the A220 we’ve taken a state-of-the-art aircraft and added our award-winning touch to bring to life an experience only JetBlue could dream up. We look forward to welcoming customers onboard our newest aircraft, with incredible onboard comfort, one-of-a-kind design elements and unparalleled entertainment and connectivity.”said Jayne O’Brien, Head of Marketing and Loyalty, JetBlue.
The aircraft is having 6 rows of seats with extra legroom.
Where will the aircraft fly?
Although we still don’t know the exact date, the airline revealed that the A220 will begin flying this spring before entering scheduled service by mid-June on JetBlue’s Boston – Fort Lauderdale route.
