JetBlue’s first Airbus A220-300 has rolled out of the paint shop.
JetBlue’s first Airbus A220 has been revealed and it features a new tail design - “Hops”.
This is the first of 70 Airbus A220-300s JetBlue currently has on order. These are set to replace the airline’s aging Embraer 190 aircraft.
This first JetBlue A220 with the test registration C-GPJH is expected to be delivered by the end of this year. Seven more will be delivered in 2021 and eight will be delivered in 2022.
No routes have been confirmed, but CEO Robert Hayes suggested the A220 could operate on JetBlue’s Boston to Washington DCA shuttle route.
Additionally, the A220-300 is perfect for some thinner transcontinental routes JetBlue has been launching lately.
