The smallest jetliner in Airbus’ in-production product line, the A220-100 (formerly known as the Bombardier CS100), was built from the ground up to serve the 100-135 seat market with unbeatable efficiency and comfort.
The extensive use of advanced aluminium in the fuselage – along with advanced composites in the wings, empennage and rear fuselage – reduces weight and increases corrosion resistance, 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 CO2 and NOx emissions.
Powered by Pratt & Whitney PurePower PW1500G geared turbofan engines specifically designed for the family, the A220-100 can connect distant airports with its 2,950 nm range and best-in-class airfield performance. Using a take-off field length as short as 1,460 metres, the A220 Family is ideal for hot-and-high and city-centre airport operations.
In addition to delivering best-in-class economics, the A220 Family’s cabin was purpose-built to deliver an exceptional passenger experience. Wide seats combined with ample overhead storage create personal space without compromising on headroom, and the cabin management system provides crews with easy, intuitive control of the aircraft’s interior environment, including entertainment offerings and mood lighting.
The A220-100’s configurable cabin provides two flex zones, allowing operators to benefit from fully customisable modular cabin elements, including stowage areas and partitions, based on their specific needs.
