The MB.220 was an all-metal low-wing cantilever monoplane. It was powered by two Gnome-Rhône 14N radial engines and had a retractable landing gear. Normal crew was four, with room for 16 passengers, with eight seats each side of a central aisle. The prototype first flew in December 1935, and was followed by 16 production aircraft.
By the middle of 1938, the type was being utilised by Air France on European routes. The first service of the type (between Le Bourget and Croydon (in south of London) was flown on 27 March 1938 with a scheduled time of 1 hour 15 minutes. During World War II, most MB.220s were taken over as military transports, including service with German, Free French and Vichy French air forces.

Eleven of the 17 built Bloch 220 were rented to Lufthansa in February 1943, . Most of them bore the marks of the Lufthansa. Most, if not all, also carried a  registration for their transfer to Berlin (D- AXWA to D-AXWK). Some of them came back in France for repair  and were re-engineered after war in Bloch 221. The others were lost and did not come back
