Start-up backed by JetBlue founder commits to 60 Airbus A220 jets

Bombardier has received an order for 60 Airbus A220-300 aircraft

A new United States airline has placed an order for 60 Airbus A220-300 aircraft, offering more encouraging news to Bombardier's Belfast workforce.

Neeleman said in a statement Tuesday accompanying the purchase of 60 Airbus A220-300 jets that his new company, "Moxy", will seek to capitalize on anger aimed at congested larger airports, according to USA Today.

If the last hurdles are removed, a deal could be announced as early as this week at the Farnborough air show in the United Kingdom, said the people, who asked not to be identified because the discussions are private.

Speculation had mounted yesterday that the original founder of JetBlue, David Neeleman, was in talks at the Farnborough Airshow for a significant order of A220s.

"After years of US airline consolidation, the conditions are improving for a new generation of USA airline to emerge, focused on passenger service and satisfaction", he said in a news release.

"The A220 will enable us to serve thinner routes in comfort without compromising cost, especially on longer-range missions".

Deliveries of the former C Series jets are slated to begin in 2021, a year after the planes are expected to start coming off a new assembly line in Mobile, Ala. Now the co-owner of TAP Air Portugal, Neeleman also played a key role in the success of Southwest after it acquired his low-fare charter airline Morris Air and helped create Canada's WestJet and Azul Brazilian Airlines.

The commitment is the second since Airbus took control of the aircraft program from Bombardier Inc.
