A220 Production Update
December is very busy for the workers at the delivery stage for the A220 factory trying to deliver as many aircraft as possible before the year ends.Within the next 7 days expect four (4) deliveries and two (2) first pre-delivery test flights.
Third Delta Airlines A220 MSN 50021 will be flying to Atlanta tomorrow or Wednesday. The 4th Delta Airbus A220 is to be making its first flight tomorrow, December 18, 2018. It is MSN 50023.
Delta deliveries are all A220-100 so far but as I wrote early we should be expecting NEWS from Airbus and Delta about the conversion of some of its A220-100 (CS100) order into A220-300 (CS300) since the first A220 aircraft to be delivered from the up and coming A220 assembly facility in Mobile, Alabama will be for Delta and it is a A220-300. Do not ask me if Delta will be ordering A220-300, I think I just answered that the other day.
The next new Korean Air A220-300 will be leaving Mirabel Airport factory Thursday. Expect it to fly using the usual delivery route via Anchorage Alaska.This is MSN 55037.
Saturday is the date the first Air Tanzania A220 will be flying toward its new home in Africa. This is MSN 55047. Expect to see the 2nd A220-300 of Air Tanzania making its first pre-delivery test flight by the end of the week, this is MSN 55048. Those are the only two (2) A220 Air Tanzania ordered.
SWISS A220-300 MSN 55046 2nd client acceptance flight should be happening within a day or two due to bad weather during last flight.
