The A220 was designed with maintenance and customer’s needs in mind. Its maintenance philosophy is based on the principle of reliability and better maintainability, integrating customer services teams from the initial design of the aircraft in order to make sure that future maintenance tasks would be kept as easy as possible.
Designed together for the highest commonality
Family commonality is very high between the A220-100 and the A220-300, above 99 % of the line-replaceable units (LRUs), as well as the same family of engines. This allows a common spare inventory which reduces investment and maintenance costs as well as training costs for mechanics and crew.
Built for easy maintenance, delivering less downtime
The extensive use of advanced materials such as composites in the wings, empennage and rear fuselage, making up more than 40% of the aircraft’s primary structure – reduces weight and increases corrosion resistance, resulting in better efficiency and maintainability.
The A220 has longer maintenance intervals: 850 hours for “A” checks and 8,500 hours for “C” checks as a result of its optimised maintenance programme, advanced systems integration and high-technology engine design.
What our Customers say

Aircraft Health Management System
The A220 benefits from a best-in-class Health Management System (HMS). This aircraft has been designed to be Big Data ready! As for the other aircraft of the Airbus family, HMS provides a live supervision of the aircraft systems while they are still flying.
The solution gathers real-time aircraft data and benefits from automated wireless transmission on ground, providing the teams with instant data for an efficient management of unscheduled maintenance to prevent interruptions and perform proactive maintenance thanks to trend analysis tools.
Additionally Airbus is continuously investing in making the A220 one of the most connected aircraft and ease its maintenance. From 2022, Skywise Predictive Maintenance and Skywise Reliability Premium will be available for the A220 and more to come.
