Air Canada has taken delivery of its first A220-300. The first aircraft out of an order of 45 will enter service in January 2020, making Air Canada the first airline to operate the A220-300 in North America. The A220 will enable the carrier to fly passengers on various routes in Canada and to the US, offering a dual-class cabin that comfortably seats 137 passengers; 12 in business class and 125 in economy. Michael Rousseau, CFO, said customers will benefit from the A220’s innovative design features, including a choice of two spacious cabins, larger overhead bins, bigger windows and a quieter experience in flight. He said the planes will enable Air Canada to strengthen its position on transborder and transcontinental markets and “will be key to our continued growth.”
