Will Airbus change the aircraft codes for the A220?

Sun Sep 08, 2019 5:49 pm

Sorry if this has been discussed before, but I can't seem to find it if so.

The A220 was renamed just over a year ago now yet it still retains the CS1/3 and BCS1/3 IATA/ICAO codes - is anybody able to shed some light on if Airbus is planning to apply to change these (or will the complexities involved in doing this make it not viable)? I've noticed some airlines including airBaltic are now starting to use the 223 code in their schedules, so perhaps Airbus will be looking to change it soon.

The TCDS governs the plane’s coding, but airline marketing can call it whatever they want.
