Breeze also announced it will be using an all-A220 fleet for its commercial operations by the end of the year.

Benoît de Saint-Exupéry, EVP Sales, Commercial Aircraft, Airbus, said: “Thanks to its world class performance capabilities, the A220 is the perfect aircraft to help Breeze achieve its goal to provide nonstop service between underserved routes across the United States.

“The aircraft offers efficient operations and an outstanding passenger experience, all while operating with the world's lowest small single-aisle carbon footprint and a lower noise footprint in the communities where it flies. This additional order from Breeze is a strong endorsement for the value and opportunities offered by this latest generation aircraft.”

The A220 is the only aircraft purpose-built for the 100-150 seat market and can fly non-stop up to 3,600 nautical miles or 6,700 kilometres. As with all Airbus aircraft, the A220 is already able to operate with up to 50% Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF). Airbus aims for all its aircraft to be capable of operating with up to 100% SAF by 2030.

Breeze took delivery of its first Airbus A220 in December 2021 and is operating 20 aircraft (as of end January 2024) throughout the United States.

More than 300 A220s have been delivered to 20 airlines operating on five continents including the recent addition of Oceania. The fleet is currently flying on more than 1,350 routes and more than 400 destinations worldwide. As of the end of January 2024, around 30 customers have ordered more than 900 A220s.
