US carrier Breeze Airways is ordering another 20 Airbus A220-300s, as it prepares to receive its first of the type in the fourth quarter.

Airbus says the order for the twinjets, previously undisclosed, brings Breeze’s overall commitment to 80 A220s.

The airline, which commenced services in May, intends to introduce the Airbus type to operations in the second quarter of 2022.

Breeze has unveiled a new livery for the A220, which is powered by Pratt & Whitney PW1500G engines, at the airframer’s US assembly line in Mobile.

Airbus says the plant will deliver around one aircraft a month to the carrier over the course of the next six-and-a-half years.

The airframer had previously revealed an order for 20 A220-300s, assigned to an unidentified customer, placed on 25 March this year.

Breeze currently uses a small fleet of Embraer E-Jets.
