TOULOUSE, France - Airbus has signed a purchase agreement with Azorra for twenty-two A220 family aircraft including twenty A220-300s and two ACJ TwoTwenty aircraft. Azorra is a Fort Lauderdale, Fla.-based aircraft lessor focused on executive, regional and mid-size aircraft.
Azorra’s purchase is the latest endorsement for the A220 Family aircraft and reaffirms the strong market demand for Airbus’ newest single-aisle aircraft.
The A220 is purpose-built for the 100-150 seat market and brings together aerodynamics, advanced materials and Pratt & Whitney’s latest-generation PW1500G geared turbofan engines. The A220 features a 50% reduced noise footprint and up to 25% lower fuel burn per seat compared to previous generation aircraft, as well as around 50% lower NOx emissions than industry standards.
As of the end of December 2021, the A220 had accumulated 668 orders from 25 customers. To date, 13 airlines are operating around 190 aircraft on four continents.
