Air France is expected to announce an order for about 60 Canadian-made Airbus A220s later this week. This order is part of the renewal of Air France’s fleet. These aircraft are intended for medium-haul flights. While the French company will announce these operating results on Wednesday, July 31, it should announce this offer to the public the day before. 

Contrary to the latest rumours, the offer will not include Airbus A320s but could nevertheless include an option to purchase aircraft of the same type as the A220s from Airbus. No information concerning the amount of the order has yet been given and Air France does not wish to confirm the offer.

The Airbus A220 is built in Canada because it is in fact nothing more than a Bombardier C Series whose name was changed when Airbus bought back part of Bombardier’s shares. It can travel 6000km and carry between 100 and 150 passengers.
