The larger member of the A220 Family, the A220-300 was specifically designed and purpose-built for the 130-160 seat market, and is a member of the most efficient aircraft family in its class. The A220-300 represents the fusion of performance and technology in a family of jetliners that deliver 10 percent lower costs per trip than large single-aisle aircraft – allowing airlines to connect distant points on continents or sectors that were previously unprofitable or impossible.
The A220-300’s advanced aerodynamics combined with specifically-designed Pratt & Whitney PurePower PW1500G geared turbofan engines contribute to an aircraft that delivers 20 percent lower fuel burn per seat than previous generation aircraft, half the noise footprint, and decreased emissions, making it a true community-minded jetliner.
Both members of the A220 Family share commonality in more than 99 percent of the line-replaceable units (LRUs), as well as the same family of engines – meaning operators can fly both versions and at a significant cost savings. Flight crews with the same pilot type rating, as well as cabin personnel, will enjoy a seamless transition between the A220-300 and A220-100, greatly reducing complexity and training costs.
