Airbus aim to dominate Indian aviation market with A220

New Delhi: The global aerospace major showcased the A220 as the only aircra purpose-built for the 100-150
seat market, with extended range capability of up to 3,400 nautical miles. This, Airbus maintained, would make it particularly suitable for operations in India.
Aboard the aircra, the demonstration flight of which was operated by Baltic Air, wider seats, aisle and bigger windows made it appear more spacious than other aircra of the same category.
Accompanying a media team, Connor Buott, senior analyst, Single-Aisle Family Product Marketing, Airbus, said the seating configuration can be customised to any requirement of the airline. "We have options for airlines to be full economy or full business," he explained.
On the aviation market in Asia, Buott said the demand for single-aisle aircra would triple over the next 20 years, and the same trend will be seen in India too.
Since Airbus already has an established network in India, he hoped the company could secure sizeable orders for A220 from airlines here.
For aviation startups, he felt the aircra could be an ideal stepping stone, oering the lowest risk.
Known before as Bombardier CSeries (or C Series), the A220 is a family of narrow-body, twin engine, medium-range jet originally designed and built by the Canadian manufacturer Bombardier
