Calling all JetBlue fans -- first appearance on new JetBlue 140-Seatter aircraft

JetBlue's new 140 seat A220 aircraft


In a time when the landscape of air travel is rapidly transforming, the unveiling of new aircraft models marks a pivotal moment in aviation innovation.


Enter the JetBlue new 140-seat aircraft (Airbus A220-300) -- the latest innovation in the aviation industry, designed specifically to accommodate 140 passengers. This new entrant is set to redefine the standards for mid-sized airliners, combining efficiency, comfort, and advanced technology.


JetBlue's new aircraft made an appearance over the weekend at Nantucket airport as the team coordinated a test operation to get people up to speed with parking and logistics. The A220 has plans to replace the fleet of 100 seat E190s which are about 2 decades old. Dimensions of the new craft are as follows comparing to the old--

Length: 38.7 Meters (vs. 35.1 Meters)

Wing Span: 35.1 Meters (vs. 28.7 Meters)


The aircraft features a state-of-the-art aerodynamic design, which reduces drag and improves fuel efficiency. Its wings are equipped with advanced winglets that minimize turbulence and fuel consumption, allowing to operate more cost-effectively.


The aircraft is powered by the latest generation of turbofan engines, which offer a 20% reduction in fuel burn compared to older models. The engines burn at a 50 percent blend of SAF (Sustainable Aviation Fuel) and have plans to be using 100% by 2030.


JetBlue had announced their first delivery of the A220s back in January 2021. You can learn more about them here.


Our commitment to the aero defense and aero industry has been revolutionary. With the help of small companies like AeroBase Group keeping planes running smoothly in the skies.
