As the smallest jetliner in Airbus’ commercial aircraft product line, the A220-100, was built from the ground up to serve the 100-135 seat market with unbeatable efficiency and comfort. With broad seats, plenty of overhead storage space and large windows, this is a single-aisle aircraft that feels like a widebody jet.
The extensive use of advanced materials – including composites in the wings, empennage and rear fuselage – reduces weight and increases resistance to corrosion, resulting in better efficiency and maintainability. These modern materials make up more than 40% of the aircraft’s primary structure, delivering weight savings for reduced fuel burn, with an accompanying reduction of up to 25% CO2 and up to 50% NOx emissions.
Powered by Pratt & Whitney PurePower PW1500G geared turbofan engines that are specifically designed for the A220 family, the A220-100 connects distant airports with its 3,450nm range and best-in-class airfield performance. The A220 Family is ideal for hot-and-high and city-centre airport operations. In fact, the A220-100 is the largest aircraft capable of operating in the constrained environment of London City Airport. From such challenging airports, the A220 Family’s performance and efficiency give it a built-in advantage.
In addition to delivering best-in-class economics, the A220-100’s configurable cabin provides two flex zones. This enables operators to benefit from fully customisable modular cabin elements tailored to their needs – including stowage areas and partitions – to deliver an exceptional passenger experience. A220 Family aircraft also are recognised for their low noise levels,
