Founded in June 2018, Moxy Airlines is a new airline led by David Neeleman, who previously co-founded Morris Air, WestJet, JetBlue, and Azul Linhas Aereas. The new low-cost airline was announced at the Farnborough International Air Show in July.
The A220-300 is the right airplane for a new airline that will be focused on passenger service and satisfaction. With a low cost of operation and spacious cabin, the A220 will allow us to provide passengers with lower fares and high quality, comfortable flying experience. The A220's ability to operate profitably in thin, underserved markets across a broad spectrum of ranges is unique, said Neeleman.
With the A220 program, Airbus plans to grab lion's share of the 100 to 150-seat market that will require around 7,000 aircraft in the next 20 years.
