The history of the Airbus A220, the controversial plane Boeing tried to keep out of the US
- The Bombardier CSeries was meant to be a game-changing aircraft. Produced by the Canadian aircraft manufacturer, it was its first foray in the 100-to-150-seat market.
- Though initially successful with sales to major airlines, the program was turned upside following a trade dispute with Boeing.
- The aircraft program was taken over by Airbus as a result, with the aircraft renamed the Airbus A220.
- Bombardier has pulled out of the venture entirely, leaving it to Airbus.

David Neeleman unveiled the name and image of his new airline, Breeze Airways, earlier this year and the first rendering of the aircraft that will be powering the operation: the Airbus A220.
It's the first time that Neeleman — a long-time Airbus fan — will use the aircraft in any of his airlines, largely because it's still relatively new to the world's skies. In just under a year, the Airbus A220 went from being largely unknown in North America to operating passenger services for some of its largest airlines.
Delta Air Lines first started operating the aircraft in the US in February 2019, with Air Canada following suit in the aircraft's home country in January 2020. Already with a foothold in Europe with Air Baltic and Swiss International Air Lines, the aircraft is now commonplace in the skies of North America with Delta and JetBlue preparing to welcome the latest and largest variant: the A220-300.
Though its name suggests otherwise, the A220 wasn't another success story of Airbus, but of Bombardier, a smaller manufacturer located just outside Montreal, Canada that aimed to take on the duopoly dominating the market.
Bombardier had already dominated in the regional aircraft market, with its Canadair Regional Jet series aircraft flying for airlines all over the world, as well as strong representation in the private jet market with its Learjet, Challenger, and Global aircraft. But the Canadian manufacturer decided to set its sights on a larger type of aircraft, one that can seat up to 150 passengers.
It would be larger than anything Bombardier had produced before and would make it the target of Airbus and Boeing, as it would later find out, but had the potential to be a game-changer and unlike anything else currently in the works.
