On Wednesday (November 10, 2021), Air France released an aerial video featuring their new Airbus A220-300, the latest jewel in the airline’s fleet. The video was produced by Airborne Films in partnership with Airbus using state-of-the-art technology to create 8K UHD Ultra High Definition images in a high-flying technical feat. Filming took place over the Atlantic coast in France between la Pointe de Grave and the Southern Landes. The Airbus A220-300 provides a 10 percent cost reduction per seat compared to the Airbus A318 and A319, as well as a 20 percent reduction in fuel consumption and emissions, making it perfectly suited for Air France’s short and medium-haul network. Additionally, the aircraft also offers a noise footprint reduction of 34 percent compared to the aircraft it replaces.
Air France’s Airbus A220-300 has 148 seats in a 3-2 configuration with five seats across, offering 80 percent of guests either a window or aisle seat. The aircraft offers Business Class and Economy Class cabins and features Air France Connect, the airline’s inflight Wi-Fi service. Additionally, Air France’s A220 has the widest available seats on the market at 48 cm, which recline to 118 degrees and offer an adjustable headrest, leather upholstery and an ergonomic seat cushion. The seats also feature a wide solid tray table, cup holder, a pouch for storing magazines and books, and individual USB A and C ports, as well as an integrated tablet or smartphone holder.
The carrier's new A220 cabin is decorated in Air France’s signature colors with shades of blue, a strong presence of white providing light and contrast, and a hint of red, symbolizing the airline’s excellence and know-how. The carpet includes a traditional ornamental herringbone pattern, symbolizing the emblematic Haussmann-inspired world of Parisian apartments. Additionally, large panoramic windows provide natural light throughout the trip, while specially-adapted cabin mood lighting settings create bright, dynamic lighting for boarding and disembarkation, and softer lighting during flight creates a more relaxed and serene environment. Airbus’ A220 also features a particularly wide aisle for easy movement, as well as spacious overhead bins.
