Zurich - On September 27, European airline operator Swiss International Air Lines has taken possession of its 25th Airbus A220.

The Swiss national airline published a photo of its 25th Airbus A220 on its Twitter account when it arrived in Zurich at midnight, one month after the arrival of the 24th A220.

The A220-300 registered HB-JCQ is configured like the other former CS300s of the carrier to accommodate 145 passengers in two classes. On its official Twitter account, Swiss continues to name the aircraft a CSeries.

The Swiss operator currently has 17 of the 20 A220-300 (former CS300 ) ordered as well as eight of the expected ten A220-200 (former CS100).

As of the end of August 2018, Airbus delivered 42 A220 single-aisle aircraft designed and assembled in Canada, out of a total of 402 firm orders.
