Nordic Aviation Capital (NAC), signed a firm order for 20 A220 Family aircraft. The order was signed at the end of 2019 and was counted in the 2910 order-book for Airbus.
“NAC’s order for the A220 shows this aircraft is just as relevant in the regional world as it is in the mainline one,” said Christian Scherer, Airbus Chief Commercial Officer. “We are delighted to work with NAC going forward, we thank them for their confidence and congratulate them on their new offices in Limerick.”
Currently, NAC is the largest lessor of regional aircraft in the world, managing and owning 500 aircraft on lease to 78 airline customers in over 50 countries.
The A220 is built for the 100-150 seat market and delivers unbeatable fuel efficiency and wide-body passenger comfort in a single-aisle aircraft.
The A220 boasts state-of-the-art aerodynamics, advanced materials and Pratt & Whitney’s latest-generation PW1500G geared turbofan engines which offers at least 20% lower fuel burn per seat plus significantly lower emissions and a reduced noise footprint.
At the end of December 2019, Airbus accumulated 600 orders for the A220.
