50 orders for the A220-300 by ALC, firmed on 07-Jan-2020.
8 orders for the A220-300 by Air Senegal, firmed on 02-Jan-2020.
https://www.airbus.com/aircraft/market/orders-deliveries.html

No cancelled in Jan-2020. So gross orders = net orders.

Although Air Canada received their 2nd A220 yesterday (https://www.flightradar24.com/data/aircraft/c-gjxe), their first one ferried back to YMX (https://www.flightradar24.com/data/aircraft/c-grov). Anybody know why?

Please take lease and order discussion to another thread. For example, there is the 2020 Airbus A220 order thread:

viewtopic.php?f=3&t=1438987

We try to keep production,/delivery threads on topic.
Feel free to start an A220 leasing thread.

That`s pretty good news for the A220 Series. My guess is, ramping up the production line

The cost to build the Mobile FAL was $300M. This is considerably more. Bombardier knew this was coming and obviously couldn't contrbute their one third share. I think this is tied to more than production facilities

That money is stricly slated for the ramp up and decrease unit costs.

No A225 in the short time. If/when it occurs, it would/will be designed/engineered and certified in Mirabel - the main A220 facility.

Was this kind of investment expected or is Airbus doubling down since they have an higher stake? I know BBD was on the leash for about 350milion, but this announcement almost triples that amount.

Per contract, Bombardier had to invest further 650 million; they had to invest according their stake in the program, Airbus would have to pay their part.according their stake. So further Investments of around 2 billion in the program were expected. So Bombardier got more than 1.2 billion for their stake in the program from Airbus, but the 650 million pending investments in the program had to be subtracted, so Airbus has paid Bombardier 600 million.for the A220 program..

Lets hope the investment goes toward increasing the production output, not towards introducing a bigger model to the lineup. I think we can all agree the biggest obstacle against more orders for A220 is the delivery time.

It's either good planning on the part of the airline, or late delivery on the part of the OEM - forcing the airline to press it into service in a rush! Hoping in this case it was the former, it seems like the AC deliveries are running at a smooth 1/month per plan ;-)

List of 2020 A220 Deliveries

1 JetBlue - per 2018 annual report (can't find 2019 yet)
7 TOTAL

1 Air Tanzania (0 to 2)
2 Air Vanuatu
2 Czech Airlines
17 Delta (A220-100)
5 EgyptAir -

66 Mobile and Mirabel Combined

12 Air Baltic
-> But there are only 3 till now with scheduled Air Baltic MSN numbers, 55086, 55094 and 55095. These 3 deliveries will be likely all in the first half of 2020. As example, all 17 scheduled Air Canada deliveries have all already published MSN numbers. I do not think, we will see 12 AirBaltic A220 in 2020. The MSN numbers shall have been now published for deliveries till around end of Sep 2020 or even later? So either Air Baltic will get 9 in the last 3 month of 2020 or deliveries have been deferred.

There was some interview and Mr. Gauss was telling that they have planned for 4 frames in 2020 (so all 737 would be gone at that point).


As local, i cant see where they could put additional 8 frames so soon.

I apologize-it looks like 6 A220's were delivered in Feb, not 5.
There was a Delta delivery on Saturday, Feb.29 that I missed.

Was the delivery of the first A220-300, assembled in Mobile, not scheduled for begin of Q3-2020? Pretty sure, MSN55070 will not need any more 4 month, to be delivered.

And we shall not forget, the first frame (55069) was damaged by the fire extinguishing fume and was taken out of the production line, to be repaired and later on to be pushed back at one slot into the production line again. So the production seems to be even much more in front as scheduled/expected/announced.

Yes, I was suggesting back on post 24 that 10-12 months for assembly could be extreme. I can understand in service date for 2H but think it is plausible that Delta receives at least 1 or 2 in 2Q, possibly for training.

Please note, the original announced plan was, to half-produce several A220-300 in the A320 FAL in Mobile, then, when the A220 FAL is completed and fitted out, to push them into different production positions/slots in the A220 FAL, so the production could start at different positions with different completion status in the A220 FAL. But MSN55070 is nearly completed, even the engines are added. It has max. 2 month left till delivery flight, in worst case 3 month.
It was not planned, to complete or nearly complete one in the A320 FAL. But MSN55070 is nearly completed, and we shall not forget, this is the second A220-300, which assembly started in Mobile.

Does it mean those are easier to assemble in Mobile than Mirabel?

Perhaps they have been able to implement learnings easier in a new line than an existing one.

Does it mean those are easier to assemble in Mobile than Mirabel?

You can't really compare the amount of A220's work required in Mobile versus Mirabel. Many A220's components are pre-assembled/riveted in Mirabel and then shipped to Mobile for final assembly. (Somewhat the same logic for the A320 where the amount of work req'd in Mobile is much lower versus in Toulouse).

So to answer your question, yes it is indeed easier to assemble in Mobile because some of the work is initially performed in Mirabel for both FALs.

But still, congrats to Mobile for this great accomplishment!! Keep going; we really need every production slots we can get.

I would also add that the learning curve req'd was pretty steep nevertheless as the A220's FAL "philosophy" is different than the ones at Airbus. Some additional skill sets were also required. So a very impressive accomplishment indeed. Kudos to Mobile!!!

So, A220s in Mobile are C-registered and A320s are F-registered; all this on US soil and (most if not all) ending on the N registry. United Colors of Benetton?

Meanwhile, Airbus Squeezes Suppliers to End Losses on Challenger to Max tells us:

“Airbus are clearly a lot more confident in their ability to sell the A220,” said Bank of America Merrill Lynch analyst Benjamin Heelan. “Being able to go to suppliers with higher medium term volumes is a big lever to get costs down.

Airbus is striving to reach break even on the A220 after paying Montreal-based Bombardier $591 million to lift its stake to 75%. While the jet’s composite wings, airy cabin and state-of-the-art cockpit make it a technological leader, Airbus Canada head Philippe Balducchi said in January that overall costs need to be reduced by “a significant double-digit” percentage.

It tells us that PW has already given back 10%. Not sure what the others will offer, or if 10% can be considered to be a "significant double-digit percentage".

It also mentions Airbus has already invested $591 million to buy out BBD and will invest as much as EUR 1B in the program this year.

It's nice to see Airbus is doing so much to push the program forward. If they get the kind of volume they plan, the suppliers should be willing to make concessions.

Thanks T4thH and Tominjsh. I found a couple sources saying 4 for air Baltic this year and will update the list next time I'm on my laptop.


Expected A220 production numbers for 2020 have been named by "The Wings over Quebec", who are regular accordingly informed. It is a good to excellent informed source regarding the A220.
It is just 55 for 2020 and it seems for Montreal and Mobile together.

In addition, in 2019, Airbus delivered 48 A220s and reduced the bottleneck in the interior finishing section. But the 2020 target will increase by only 7 aircraft for a total of 55 deliveries.
