Airbus welcomes A220 series to the family

According to Airbus, the A220-100 is the smallest airliner in the company’s current production line-up, seating 100 to 135 passengers. Meanwhile, the A220-300 seats 130 to 160. Both single-aisle aircraft use advanced aluminum structures and carbon composites, share commonality in over 99 percent of the line-replaceable units (LRUs), and use the same Pratt & Whitney PW1500G fanjet engines. While the A220-300 has greater range, the A220-100 is capable of taking off from city airports with shorter runways.
