Delta Air Lines’ first Airbus A220-100 has
completed its maiden flight.
The 173-minute flight took place a few days after the aircraft rolled
out of the paint shop. The aircraft will now continue with
pre-delivery testing and assembly, as elements of its
interior come together at the A220 assembly line in Quebec, Canada.
The A220-100, previously known as
the Bombardier CS100, is powered by Pratt & Whitney’s
latest-generation PW1500G geared turbofan engines,
Delta Air Lines will be the first U.S. airline to operate the A220
– at the same time becoming the fourth A220 operator, after Swiss
International Air Lines,
airBaltic, and Korean Air.
Delta is the
largest A220-100 customer, with a firm order for 75 aircraft.
Delta’s first A220 is scheduled to begin service in early 2019.
