SEOUL, South Korea - An Airbus A220-300 flight test aircraft will visit six Asian destinations as part of a demonstration tour across the region. After a stopover at Seoul’s Incheon Airport, the aircraft heads to Yangon (Myanmar), the first location of the demonstration tour. The aircraft will then visit Hanoi (Vietnam), Bangkok (Thailand) and Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia) before heading north to Nagoya (Japan).
The A220 is in the 100-150 seat market. It delivers efficiency and passenger comfort in its size category, with 20% lower fuel consumption than previous generation aircraft. The A220 being used for the demonstration tour in Asia is an Airbus flight test aircraft fitted with a typical single-class passenger cabin.
During the A220 demonstration tour, customers and media will be offered a close up view of the aircraft’s characteristics, comfort and performance.
The A220 delivers fuel efficiency and wide-body comfort in a single-aisle aircraft. The A220 brings together aerodynamics, advanced materials and Pratt & Whitney’s latest-generation PW1500G geared turbofan engines to offer at least 20% lower fuel burn per seat compared to previous generation aircraft. With a range of up to 3,400 nm (6,300 km), the A220 offers the performance of larger single-aisle aircraft.
