Croatia Airlines signed a contract for six A220 aircraft

Croatia Airlines — national carrier of Croatia based in Zagreb — signed a firm order for six A220-300s. In addition, it plans to lease nine more A220s, bringing the total number of new Airbuses to 15. 

The A220s will replace the previous generation of aircraft in the company's fleet. Purpose — above all, reduce operating costs, increase environmental efficiency and competitiveness, and offer passengers an unparalleled level of comfort.

‚ÄúToday's signing of a contract for the purchase of ultra-modern Airbus jets — this is a very special moment for all of us at Croatia Airlines. This marks the beginning of a new period in aviation, a new period in the life of Croatia Airlines, a new period for our passengers and a new period for tourism and the Croatian economy as a whole, — noted Jasmine Bayic, CEO and Chairman of the Board of Croatia Airlines.

A220 — it is the only aircraft specifically built for the 100 to 150 seat market segment, combining state-of-the-art aerodynamics, advanced materials and the latest Pratt & Whitney. The A220 delivers 50% less noise, up to 25% less CO2 fuel consumption per passenger than previous generation aircraft, and about 50% less NOx emissions than industry standards.

The partnership between Airbus and Croatia airlines began 25 years ago when the airline first became an Airbus operator. Today, the Croatian carrier operates an Airbus fleet of seven narrow-body aircraft of the A320 family — five A319s and two A320s.

To date, over 230 A220s have been delivered to 16 airlines operating on four continents.
This is the best option for both regional and intercity routes. The A220 has been used by over 70 million passengers. It serves flights on over 800 routes to 325 destinations worldwide.
