Airbus is taking the A220-300 (Formally known as the Bombardier CSeries CS300) on tour!

The European planemaker Airbus is taking an airBaltic A220-300 new-generation single-aisle aircraft on a tour of five cities in four countries as part of its world demonstration tour.

First, the sleek looking A220-300 is attending the Zhuhai airshow in China from today, November 5th until Thursday, November 8th before flying to Chengdu on November 9th. The aircraft will continue on its journey with a stopover in Koh Samui on November 10th before flying to Nepal's Kathmandu for November 11th. After that, the airBaltic A220 will go to Istanbul in Turkey on November 12th and then the lovely craft will fly to the home base of airBaltic, Riga, Latvia on November 14th.

Airbus believe this demonstration tour for the A220-300 is a great opportunity to show off the fast, technologically advanced, super efficient and spacious aircraft to the media and potential customers in their own local region.  It will offer the opportunity for airline bosses and journalists to get up close and personal to the aircraft and its outstanding characteristics, comfort, and performance and see the benefit for both operators and passengers alike.

airBaltic’s A220-300 features a comfortable cabin arrangement able to accommodate 145 passengers in true widebody comfort. The Latvian airline already operates 13 A220-300s out of a total of 50 ordered.

The A220 is the only aircraft purpose built for the 100-150 seat market, and it delivers unbeatable fuel efficiency and true widebody comfort in a single-aisle aircraft. The A220 brings together state-of-the-art aerodynamics, advanced materials and Pratt & Whitney’s latest-generation PW1500G geared turbofan engines to offer at least 20 percent lower fuel burn per seat compared to previous generation aircraft. With a range of up to 3,200 nm (5,020 km), the A220 offers the performance of larger single-aisle aircraft. With an order book of over 400 aircraft to date, the A220 has all the credentials to win the lion’s share of the 100- to 150-seat aircraft market.
