First JetBlue Airbus A220 Revealed - New Tail Design

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.

Been spoiled with all these new tailfins this year. Can’t wait to see what they do for the A321XLR in a few years.

I absolutely despise the A220, but I think that this livery is actually cool. Never seen blue engine cowlings or orange wing leading edges.

I don’t know if the orange is staying, it may just be tape.
But again, what do I know

I don’t like the orange and blue. Looks tacky and out of place.
I am excited that they are getting new aircraft though

That’s what I thought at first, looks like the orange is temporary. Hopefully

Orange is just for maintenance and applying the paint. It won’t stay. But this livery is sweet 💙 I think it’s Mint to Be in the JetBlue fleet.
