Commenting on the top-up order for 10 more A220-300s was Benoît de Saint-Exupéry, EVP Sales, Commercial Aircraft, Airbus:

“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.”

Within this week’s announcement from Breeze regarding 10 more Airbus A220-300s ordered, another aspect was revealed.

The airline will become a single-fleet airline by year-end, in a move to keep costs down and have singular commonality.

As per data from Planespotters.net, at the time of writing, the carrier has 21 A220s and 16 Embraer E190 aircraft.

The E190s will all be phased out by the end of 2024, as the carrier continues to receive more Airbus aircraft.

All eyes will be on the airline’s progress throughout 2024.
