JetBlue, an airline that’s been around for only 20 years has made a big company decision by deciding to retire their ERJ-190 fleet for the new modern A220. This aircraft was originally designed by Bombardier, and then give it to Airbus because of financial issues. If you would like to know more about this, I recommend you check this video out. A few months back, JetBlue announced that their plane was in fact completed. Today we see that airplane take a flight from Mobile Alabama to New York to deliver to the airline. Comes just in time before the new year, as 2020 has now came to a close and we welcome 2021. The airline released this statement
“The A220 is a next-generation aircraft our customers and crewmembers will love, featuring impressive range and superior economics to support critical financial and operating priorities along with new network planning flexibility. And as we evolve our fleet for the future, the A220’s significant reduction in per-seat emissions supports our ongoing commitment to carbon neutrality for all our domestic flights, and moves us closer to achieving our pledge of net zero carbon emissions across all operations by 2040.” - Robin Hayes, JetBlue CEO
I am excited to see what new adventures this aircraft will take them on!
