On Tuesday (February 20, 2024), from the Singapore Airshow, Airbus announced that Breeze Airways has placed an incremental order for 10 additional Airbus A220-300s, bringing their firm order total for the type to 90, Making Breeze the third largest A220 operator in the world.  Additionally, Breeze has announced that they will operate an all-Airbus A220 fleet by the end of 2024.  The Airbus A220 can fly nonstop up to 3,600 nautical miles (6,700 km) while delivering a 25 percent reduction in fuel burn and emissions versus previous generation aircraft, as well as around 40 percent lower NOx emissions compared to the industry standard. 


The only aircraft purpose-built for the 100-150 seat market, the A220 combines state-of-the-art aerodynamics, advanced materials, and Pratt & Whitney’s latest generation GTF engines, bringing customers a noise footprint reduction of 50 percent.  Like all Airbus aircraft, the A220 is already certified to operate with up to 50 percent sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF), and the company aims for all their aircraft to be capable of operating with 100 percent SAF by 2030.  Breeze Airways took delivery of their first A220 in December 2021, and as of January 31, 2024, operates 20 of the type serving destinations across the U.S.


In Tuesday’s announcement, Breeze Airways’ EVP Sales, Commercial Aircraft, Benoît de Saint-Exupéry, 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.” 


Airbus has delivered over 300 A220s to 20 airlines worldwide, and since entering service the aircraft has carried more than 100 million passengers.  The global A220 fleet is currently flying on over 1,350 routes to more than 400 destinations worldwide.  As of January 30, 2024, around 30 customers had ordered over 900 A220 Family jets, confirming the aircraft’s leading position in the small single-aisle market.


Founded in 2018, Salt Lake City, Utah-based Breeze Airways launched flight operations in May 2021.  The carrier operates a fleet of Embraer E190/195 jets and Airbus A220-300s, serving 48 cities in 26 states.  Breeze currently has an additional 70 A220-300s on order, and will transition to an all A220 fleet by the end of 2024.  Focused on providing efficient and affordable flights between secondary airports, Breeze offers seamless booking, no change or cancellation fees, and up to 24-months of reusable flight credit.  Additionally, the airline offers customizable flight features, including complimentary family seating.
