Aviation Week's 2023 Fleet and MRO Forecast predicts that commercial MRO demand for the global fleet of Airbus A220 aircraft will represent a value of $8 billion for the period 2023-32.

Line maintenance work has the highest share of 35% of the total MRO demand for A220 aircraft globally.

Components and engine maintenance account for 30% and 24%, respectively, while airframe heavy maintenance and modifications will see demand of around $600 million and $300 million, respectively.

The data below illustrates the spike in firm orders for the narrowbody aircraft from 2023-25. Recently, many airlines, including Air Canada, Delta Air Lines and Air France, have firmed up their orders for A220 aircraft. By 2026, Croatia Airlines is set to replace its fleet of A320 family and De Havilland Canada Dash 8-400 aircraft with A220s.

Airbus A220 aircraft are powered by Pratt & Whitney's PW1500G engines and Aviation Week's data shows an increasing demand in engine deliveries through 2023-27. Beyond then, there will be a steady demand for the PW1500G engines.
