Australian flag carrier Qantas has taken delivery of its first Airbus A220 short-haul airliner which is replacing Qantaslink Boeing 717s.

The next-generation airliner will be used on domestic flights for Qantaslink and features a special livery featuring Aboriginal artwork.

The aircraft is being delivered to Sydney from Airbus’ Mirabel Final Assembly Line via Vancouver, Honolulu and Nadi.

The Airbus 220 has twice the range of the Boeing 717s it is replacing and is capable of flying up to 3,450nm and it has the largest cabin, seats and windows in its class, offering passengers superior comfort.

Qantaslink A220s feature a 137 seats cabin configured in a two class layout seating 10 passengers in business and 127 in economy.

Powered by the latest generation Pratt & Whitney GTF™ engines, it can fly up to 3,450 nautical miles non-stop. 

It can also operate on a 50% mix of Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) helping the airline meet its net-zero targets.
