The
A220 is the only aircraft purpose-built for the 100-150 seat market; it
delivers unbeatable fuel efficiency and widebody passenger comfort in a
single-aisle aircraft. The A220 brings together state-of-the-art aerodynamics,
advanced materials and Pratt & Whitney’s latest-generation PW1500G geared turbofan
engines to offer at least 20 percent lower fuel burn per seat compared to
previous generation aircraft, along with significantly lower emissions and a
reduced noise footprint. The A220 offers the performance of larger single-aisle
aircraft. At the end of January 2020, the A220 had accumulated 658 orders.
