Air Canada Receives Its First A220

Air Canada has taken delivery of its first Airbus A220-300 aircraft:

This is 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.

Here it is. Honestly, it’s beautiful.

About Air Canada’s A220:

  • The aircraft features 12 Business Class seats and 125 Economy Class seats.
  • It’ll be publicly unveiled on January 15, 2020.
  • Air Canada’s A220 will initially operate the new Toronto to San Jose (CA) and Montreal to Seattle routes starting May 4, 2020.

Congrats to Air Canada on this new aircraft and becoming the first North American airline to receive this A220-300 aircraft!

I’m hoping to see them in Halifax, we could use bigger aircraft for the YOW-YHZ route then CRJ9’s and DH8D’s lol

Looks absolutely stunning <3

Well, I got some information about Airbus A220 coming to our city on Dec 28th. We are also apparently the first flight to operate the CS300.

O…M…G… IT’S BEAUTIFUL.

Devs you better get working on that A220 (takes on kiddy tantrum voice to sound pathetically threatening) or ‘im going to not pay for the pro’


For the record I’m joking, I love the A350, can’t wait for the 777, and hope that over the next year or so we may see the light of the A220.

That also caught me, but Air Canada is the first to operate the -300 in North American while Delta was the first to operate the -100.

Air Canada hope to see this birds around Canada. I’ll try to get inside one of these 1 day…

Delta does operate the A220 in North America, but unlike Air Canada, which has the A220-300, Delta has the A220-100.

They operate on routes like SLC-SJC and SEA-SJC along with LGA-DFW and LGA-IAH


I seriously can’t wait for Air Canada to open their YYZ-SJC route in May with this brand new airplane!

I AM SO EXCITED!


Also, I found the plane on FR24. Her registration is C-GROV.

I can’t wait to spot this bird at YYZ! Mistook a couple Embraers for it already, hoping for them to be the CSeries! (It’ll forever be a CSeries in my eyes)
