MONTREAL, QUEBECIraqi Airways, the national carrier of Iraq, has taken delivery of its first out of five A220-300 aircraft from Airbus' Mirabel plant, in Quebec Canada.



Upon entry into service, Iraqi Airways will become one of the first airlines to operate the A220 in the Middle East region.

Iraqi Airways’ A220-300 features a modern and highly comfortable dual-class cabin that seats 132 passengers; 12 in business class and 120 in economy class. The aircraft will play an integral part in Iraqi Airways' fleet renewal and modernization plan.

The A220 is an aircraft purpose-built for the 100-150 seat market and brings together state-of-the-art aerodynamics, advanced materials, and Pratt & Whitney’s latest-generation PW1500G geared turbofan engines.

Featuring a 50% reduced noise footprint and up to 25% lower fuel burn per seat compared to previous generation aircraft, as well as around 50% lower NOx emissions than industry standards, the A220 is an eco-friendly aircraft for regional as well as long-distance routes operations.

As of the end of November 2021, over 180 A220s had been delivered to 13 operators, from Asia, North America, Europe, Africa, and the Middle East.
