Airbus has revealed the livery for Breeze Airways’ Airbus A220 aircraft and has also revealed that the airline has placed an order for 20 additional A220-300 aircraft, bringing Breeze’s total order book to 80 A220-300s.
The aircraft’s fresh paint job was completed at Airbus’ facility in Mobile, Alabama, which will deliver approximately one A220 per month to Breeze over the next six-and-a-half years. Breeze will take delivery of its first A220-300 in Q4 2021, specifically in October 2021. The airline plans to begin flights with the A220 in Q2 2022.
The airline started operations in May 2021. Breeze presently operates a fleet of Embraer E190 aircraft flying on underserved routes across the United States. This first A220 is the first new aircraft that will be operated by the airline.
