This is also one of the major prerogatives for Airbus on-board CSeries Aircraft Limited Partnership (CSALP), the JV it created with Bombardier and Investissement Québec. The European aircraft manufacturer is in charge of customer support for the A220 family.

While little information has yet been revealed for the plane support side, Rob Dewar, Head of Customer Support & Engineering at CSALP and the real "father" of the CSeries programme, has looked over the fleet which is in service.

The 38 A220-100 and -300 which have already been delivered to three airlines (Swiss, airBaltic and Korean Air) have logged more than 75 000 flying hours, with an average usage rate of over 18 hours per day. Rob Dewar does remind us, however, that these aircraft are used very differently by each carrier, with flights of over six hours for airBaltic's CS300s between Abu Dhabi and Riga, for instance. Conversely, Swiss can cover up to ten segments per day with its planes.

For maintenance, Rob Dewar announced that over 65 scheduled A-Checks have been carried out without any specific problems being noted during the inspections. He also referred to the Swiss airline, the carrier which launched the CS100 just two years ago, which notes that these operations are much easier than on certain other aircraft, with inspection only taking 3 hours, compared with 9 hours usually. "This makes it even easier to put an inspection in place overnight", he added.
