FARNBOROUGH - Airbus has revealed a new livery and renamed the Bombardier CSeries aircraft. They are now designated: AIRBUS A220-100 and A220-300.
The new relationship between Bombardier and Airbus, which has saved the CSeries is one of the best positive outcomes of the year. From July 2018, the European manufacturer holds a 51 percent stake in the CSeries program.
"For the next 20 years, our goal is to sell 3,000 A220 aircraft," said David Dufrenoi, CSeries Sales Chief, which would account for about half of the 100-150-seater aircraft that would be demanded by the overall market.
Currently, the CSeries has 402 firm orders, 38 of which have already been delivered (23 to Swiss, nine to Air Baltic and six to Korean Air).
With the integration of the CSeries into Airbus family of aircraft, the European aerospace giant now covers the majority of single-aisle market requirements with a total of six aircraft types: A318 (107-132 seats in single class), A319neo (140-160 seats in 2-class), A320neo (165-194 seats in 2-class), A321neo (206-244 seats in 2-class), A220-100 (120-135 seats), and the A220-300 (130-160 seats).
