Built-in efficiency The smallest jetliner in Airbus’ in-production product line, the A220-100, was built from the ground up to serve the 100-135 seat market with unbeatable efficiency and comfort. With broad seats, plenty of overhead storage space and large windows, it’s a single-aisle aircraft that feels like a wide-body jet. 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 takeoff field length as short as 1,460 metres, the A220 Family is ideal for hot-and-high and city-centre airport operations. In fact, the A220-100 is the largest aircraft able to operate in the constrained environment of London City Airport. From such challenging airports, the A220 Family’s performance and efficiency give it a built-in advantage. Passenger comfort In addition to delivering best-in-class economics, the A220 Family’s cabin was purpose-built to deliver an exceptional passenger experience. A220 Family aircraft are recognised for their low noise levels, providing a quiet and comfortable cabin. 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. Like the larger A220-300 version, 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.
