“Moxy” Orders 60 Airbus A220s

 

The start-up U.S. airline code-named “Moxy” has signed a firm order with Airbus to purchase 60 A220-300 aircraft. Plans for the new low-cost airline were unveiled at the Farnborough International Air Show in July 2018.

Moxy is the new airline venture led by David Neeleman, one of the industry’s most innovative entrepreneurs and founder of JetBlue Airways. In addition to JetBlue, Neeleman also founded Azul Brazilian Airlines and is the controlling investor in the revitalisation of TAP Air Portugal.

Speaking of the aircraft, Neeleman said: “The A220-300 is the right airplane for a new airline that will be focused on passenger service and satisfaction. [It] will allow us to provide passengers with lower fares and a high quality, comfortable flying experience.”

The order was completed the final week of December. Airbus will produce the A220-300 at a new U.S. assembly facility in Mobile, Alabama. Construction of that plant, to be located adjacent to the existing Airbus A320 assembly facility, will begin later this month.
