Iraqi Airways has taken delivery of its first out of five A220-300 aircraft from Airbus Mirabel, Canada. Upon entry into service, Iraqi Airways will become one of the first airlines to operate the A220 in the Middle East region.


With the A220, Iraqi Airways will benefit from the aircraft’s exceptional technical, economic and environmental performance. Iraqi Airways’ A220-300s feature a modern and highly comfortable dual-class cabin that seats 132 passengers: twelve in business-class and 120 in economy-class. The state-of-the-art aircraft will play an integral part of Iraqi Airways’ fleet renewal and modernization plan.


The A220 is the only aircraft purpose-built for the 100-150 seat market and brings together state-of-the-art aerodynamics, advanced materials and Pratt & Whitney’s latest-generation PW1500G geared turbofan engines. Featuring a 50% reduced noise footprint and up to 25% lower fuel burn per seat compared to previous-generation aircraft, as well as around 50% lower NOx emissions than industry standards, the A220 is a great aircraft for regional as well as long-distance routes operations.
