Swiss International Air Lines AG (SWISS) has taken delivery of its 30th new Airbus A220 aircraft at Zurich Airport, to mark a further milestone in the biggest fleet renewal program in its corporate history. SWISS was the launch carrier and first operator of the new short- and medium-haul twin-engine jet, which was designed and developed from scratch. The Airbus A220 emits over 20% less carbon dioxide than comparable aircraft types. SWISS’s 30th A220, a ‑300 model with the registration HB-JCU, was named ‘Davos’ following its Zurich arrival.
SWISS now operates nine of the smaller Airbus A220-100s (seating 125 passengers) and 21 of the larger Airbus A220-300s (with 145 passenger seats)
