Air France-KLM signs commitment for 60 A220 aircraft

Air France-KLM orders 60 Airbus A220 aircraft

The Air France–KLM Group has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) for 60 A220-300 aircraft to modernise its fleet. The aircraft are powered by Pratt & Whitney’s latest-generation PW1500G geared turbofan engines and are intended to be operated by Air France.  Air France currently operates a fleet of 144 Airbus aircraft.

With an order book of 551 aircraft as of end of June 2019, the A220 has all the credentials to win the lion’s share of the 100-to-150-seat aircraft market, estimated to represent 7,000 aircraft over the next 20 years.
