Croatia Airlines has shared a video on its social media channels that shows the construction and painting of its very first Airbus A220. The aircraft showcased is A220-300 9A-CAE (55290), which is scheduled to be delivered to the airline next month. Close observers will note that the airline will introduce a slight modified livery with larger titles and a different logo on the fuselage.

The airline has a total of fifteen A220s on order, thirteen A220-300s and two A220-100s, which they will use to replace the total current fleet of four A319s, three A320s, and six DHC-8-400s. The A220s on order are a combination of aircraft ordered directly with Airbus, as well as secured via lessors.

This year, the airline expects one more A220-300. After that, the delivery plan is for two A220-100s and four A220-300s in 2025, four A220-300s in 2026, and the final three in 2027.
