The A220 Family

The A220 Family

Purpose built for efficiency

The A220 Family portfolio



A European-Canadian partnership

Airbus’ global reach and scale combines with Bombardier’s state-of-the-art jetliner in the A220 Family, which is now being produced in a partnership between Airbus and Bombardier.

Airbus manufactures, markets, and supports A220 Family aircraft through the Airbus-Bombardier partnership, with Bombardier’s two jetliners – previously designated the C Series – being brought into the Airbus commercial aircraft line-up.

These aircraft expand the Airbus single-aisle family to cover the 100-150 seat segment – and respond to a worldwide market demand for smaller single-aisle jetliners.

High efficiency, low risk

A220 Family aircraft have been specifically designed for the 100-150 seat market, resulting in efficiencies inherent in purpose-built aircraft, and an unmatched environmental scorecard. What’s more, the A220-100 and A220-300 have over 99% parts commonality, as well as the same pilot type rating, facilitating the family’s addition to any airline’s fleet.

A220 Family jetliners were designed using state-of-the-art computational aerodynamics combined with 21st century supercomputing capability; the result is a family of aircraft with optimal aerodynamic performance and efficiency. Powering the aircraft are twin Pratt & Whitney PurePower PW1500G geared turbofan engines specifically designed for the A220. With a bypass ratio of 12:1 – one of the highest of any turbofan engine in the world – the engines feature 20% lower fuel burn per seat than previous-generation aircraft, half the noise footprint, and decreased emissions.

Together, the A220 Family represents the most efficient aircraft in the skies in their class, with low operating costs and the lowest noise levels of any commercial jet in production. This makes the A220 Family aircraft ideal for urban operations and noise-sensitive airports.

Superior single-aisle comfort

A220 Family aircraft are designed to deliver the feel of a wide-body jetliner in a single-aisle aircraft. The cabin provides space where it matters the most, leading to an unparalleled passenger experience.

Overhead bins, with the largest stowage capacity in their class, are easily accessible. The extra-large windows with more than one at each row, are positioned high on the cabin sidewall to provide an optimal viewing angle and an abundance of natural light. Wide seats –18 inches or more – provide a generous personal space without compromise, and the newly designed engines contribute to the quietest cabin in its class.

The A220 lower deck cargo hold boasts a wide flat floor and vertical sidewalls for efficient stacking, which result in a significantly higher usable volume than the competition.

A220, unbeatable fuel efficiency


The A220 Family is the newest addition to the Airbus family of commercial aircraft, offering unsurpassed performance and superior customer comfort in the 100- to 150-seat market. Perfectly sized for this market, the A220 is the ideal complement for the A320 Family and the latest addition to Airbus’ leading single-aisle family. Read less Read more
