January 9, 2019 - by Sylvain Faust for Fliegerfaust
The 2nd, and last, A220-300 aircraft sold to Air Tanzania is currently in flight. It left the factory located at Mirabel airport, Quebec, Canada at 19:00 local (00:00 UTC) with 18 people on board. This is MSN 55048. Their first A220 was delivered few weeks ago, MSN 55048.
Air Tanzania ordered only two (2) aircraft. Technically this is the first completely delivered A220 order.
This 2nd aircraft is registered 5H-TCI. You can follow its position live from Flightradar24 at this page:
This aircraft was technically "delivered" last month, in 2018. To be considered delivered the aircraft has to be "paid". When is the client leaving the factory with the aircraft is called the "Ferry" and not the "Delivery". Special for Air Tanzania, the ferry is not done by their pilots but by Airbus/Bombardier pilots.
