Airbus formally rebrands C Series as the A220 Family

Airbus (AIB, Toulouse Blagnac) has formally rebranded the C Series as the A220 after it assumed control of the product line from Bombardier (BBA, Montréal Trudeau) on July 1.

During a ceremony at Toulouse Blagnac on Tuesday, July 10, the European manufacturer said that going forward, the CS100 and CS300 would now be known as the A220-100 and A220-300 respectively.

“I pay tribute to all the women and men at Bombardier and the supply chain who have strived over the past years to bring this fantastic aircraft to the world," Guillaume Faury, Airbus President Commercial Aircraft, said. "The A220 now enters a new phase in its career with all Airbus’ resources behind it to further its commercial success worldwide."

Airbus Chief Executive Tom Enders hinted last week that new orders for the line, which has struggled to build a significant backlog, could be announced at the upcoming Farnborough Air Show.

Airbus currently owns a 50.01% majority stake in C Series Aircraft Limited Partnership (CSALP), with Bombardier and Investissement Québec controlling around 34% and 16% respectively. CSALP’s head office, primary assembly line, and related functions are based at Montréal Mirabel, Québec.

Airbus introduces the A220-100 and A220-300

10 July 2018

Airbus has revealed the A220 at a ceremony held at its Henri-Ziegler Delivery Centre, near Toulouse. Witnessed by Airbus employees and members of the global news media, the A220-300 landed directly from the painting at 12:25 am CEST wearing its new Airbus name and colours.

The A220 family comprises two models, the A220-100 and A220-300, formerly Bombardier Inc.’s C Series (CS100 and CS300). The aircraft are fully optimized for the 100 to 150 seat market and perfectly complement Airbus’ existing best-selling A320neo family.

“Everyone at Airbus has been looking forward to this historic moment. 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, Airbus President Commercial Aircraft. “I pay tribute to all the women and men at Bombardier and the supply chain who have strived over the past years to bring this fantastic aircraft to the world. The A220 now enters a new phase in its career with all Airbus’ ressources behind it to further its commercial success worldwide."

Eric Schulz, Airbus Chief Commercial Officer, added: “We are enthusiastic about incorporating the A220 in the Airbus Family. I have received positive feedback from customers, and this contributes to my optimism that within the Airbus network, we will make the A220 a great commercial success."

Airbus is going to be in a dilemma. Do they push the A220-300 (CS-300) or the A319 NEO?

The A319 is definitely a more popular airliner given its common type rating with the A320 and A321. So killing it is probabaly out of the question. It will be interesting to see what thye do with the CS-300.
