The Airbus A220 sits at the airport

Allure of Airbus A220 Hits New Market

Making its debut in Latin America in mid-April, the Airbus A220 created quite a stir. Prospective airline customers were drawn to the A220 as a cost-efficient solution.  

The allure of the Airbus A220 hit the new marketplace as part of a planned tour of the region.  

Owned by SWISS International Airlines, the A220 used for the expedition had planned stops in Argentina, Brazil, and Chile. The logistics management expertise of the JAS Brazil team was required for the A220’s inaugural stop in Brazil.  

Team members conducted a record operation with the Federal Revenue. In just three hours, the team obtained the required documentation, licenses, and organization of landings for demonstration. JAS Brazil also was responsible for coordinating the A220’s departure from Brazil to its next stop in Miami, Fla. The team is responsible for coordinating the re-export of the Airbus A220 following its departure until its return to its storage yard.  

It's not difficult to see why airlines in Latin America are interested in the Airbus A220. It is the only aircraft built for the 100 to 150-seat market. Additionally, it brings together Pratt & Whitney’s state-of-the-art aerodynamics, composite materials, and turbofan engines.  

The A220 features a 50 percent noise footprint reduction and lower fuel burn per seat compared to the previous generation aircraft. Another attractive quality is the 50 percent lower nitrous oxide (NOx) emissions than industry standards currently require.  

Currently, the A220 is Airbus’ main player for regional operations, with the possibility of a jet for long-haul routes. JAS Brazil is pleased to be a part of this unparalleled introduction into the Latin American marketplace and looks forward to furthering collaboration with Airbus.

Green Solutions : Short Sea Shipping

Green Solutions : Short Sea Shipping

Over time, the volume of goods being transported on European roads has steadily increased, leading to congested roads, delays, and unnecessary costs. As shippers look to avoid these issues, many are considering short sea shipping as a viable solution.

What is short sea shipping?

Short sea shipping is essentially container movement within Europe, but with a short time on the sea. Short sea shipping is an excellent alternative to road freight. However, it is not a matter of dismantling road transport. It is about environmentally smart alternatives that improve existing supply chains.

What are the advantages of short sea shipping?

  • Increased Reliability: One significant benefit of short sea shipping is that shippers receive goods in a reliable, consistent, and timely manner. Unlike road transport, which is prone to delays and irregular logistics flow due to congestion, short sea shipping allows for scheduled departures and arrivals.
  • A Sustainable Choice: Short sea shipping provides great environmental, social, and economic advantages and plays a vital role in sustainable shipping. Moving a significant volume of goods from road freight to short sea will positively impact road congestion, road safety, and noise levels. One feeder vessel carries the equivalent of 500 truckloads. Compared to using trucks only, this solution provides increased both in terms of cost and CO2 emissions.
  • Buy What You Need: The size of a container often determines the quantity purchased, but it is important to buy and transport only what is needed. A short sea solution enables shippers to avoid producing excess merchandise with no demand and risks being destroyed. Short sea shipping affords the opportunity to book smaller quantities resulting in fewer containers being utilized.
  • Cost-Efficient Alternative: Sea freight rates are considerably lower than road freight rates, especially when transporting larger freight volumes and heavier cargo. Transitioning from road freight to short sea allows shippers to circumvent the high freight rates associated with road transport. In the long term, moving large volumes to short sea and away from the roads of Europe would help restore the capacity imbalance in road freight and eventually remove lack-of-capacity surcharges.
