Breeze Airways, the US low-cost airline founded by David Neeleman, has placed an additional order for 10 A220-300 jets with Airbus.

With the new agreement, the carrier has a firm order for 90 aircraft, of which 21 are already in service.

Breeze was launched in May 2021 with a proposal for affordable tickets and tailored service between small and medium-sized cities in the United States.

The debut took place with second-hand Embraer E-Jets aircraft until in December 2021 the first new A220-300 arrived at the airline.

According to Airbus, Breeze plans to operate only with the A220 until the end of 2024.

Former C Series

With 90 jets, Breeze will have the third largest fleet of A220s in the world, an aircraft originally designed by Bombardier as the C Series. In 2018, Airbus acquired the program and renamed it.

As of January, the series, which also includes the smaller capacity A220-100, had 914 firm orders, of which 316 had already been delivered.
