Breeze Brings Home Airbus A220 for Transcontinental Flights

Read Time:1 Minute, 4 Seconds

October 27. One of America’s newest airlines is celebrating its five-month anniversary with a brand-new plane.

Breeze Airways took delivery of its first Airbus A220-300 on Tuesday as part of an 80-aircraft order that will bring the airline to new heights and expand its reach well beyond the US. Built in Airbus’ Mobile, Alabama facility, the A220 in Breeze’s configuration boasts features including mood lighting, in-flight WiFi, in-seat power with 110v AC outlets and USB charging ports at every seat, and the largest cabin in its aircraft class.

A transatlantic expansion is also in the works as Breeze is looking at secondary cities across the Northeast as potential stepping stones for flights to Europe. Destinations in South America may also be served from the Southeast and Hawaii from the West Coast thanks to the new aircraft’s impressive capabilities, while the Embraer E190/E195 fleet that launched Breeze in May will stick to North America.

And Breeze is already pressing Airbus to give the aircraft 4,000 nautical miles of range by adding auxiliary fuel tanks. The extra 600 nautical miles would allow for long-haul international flights from cities deeper into the US and open up Central Europe and South America flights from the East Coast.
