DSC_0836Airbus announced that the new model designation for the Bombardier C Series will be the A220, aligning it with its larger A320 single-aisle range of aircraft.

The former CS100 will receive the designation A220-100 and the CS300 will be the A220-300.

“Today, we are thrilled to welcome the A220 to the Airbus family and are honoured to see it wearing its new Airbus colours for the first time,” said Guillaume Faury, president of Airbus’ commercial aircraft unit.

As of July 1, Airbus owns a 50.01% majority stake in the C Series Aircraft Limited Partnership, while Bombardier and Investissement Québec own the remainder.

Airbus A220 aircraft will continue to be manufactured in Mirabel, Québec, where the partnership is headquartered.
