Air Canada has taken delivery of its first Airbus A220-300, the wings of which are made in Belfast by Bombardier.

The aircraft will enter service next month, making Air Canada the first airline to operate the A220-300 in North America. US carrier Delta flies the smaller A220-100.

Michael Rousseau, Air Canada chief financial officer, said the A220 would be key to its growth.

"Customers will benefit from the A220's innovative design, including a choice of two spacious and comfortable cabins, larger overhead bins, bigger windows and a quieter experience in flight," he said.
