Qantas’ Airbus order: Why you’ll love travelling on the Flying Kangaroo’s new A220s

Qantas passengers will love the Airbus A220 regional jet, which will replace the airline’s 717s and some Fokker 100 operations in WA.

The airline has committed to ordering 20 of the A220-100 as part of a 40 order and 94 option announcement and includes the A321neoXLR.

The A220 was originally the Canadian Bombardier C Series but now has the backing of Airbus and is sold as part of the aerospace giant’s portfolio of airliners.

It features a 3-2 cross-section with 18-inch wide seats and the middle seat of the set of three is 19 inches (48.3cm) wide, while the aircraft’s very large windows make the cabin seem bigger than it is.
