airBaltic has returned its last Bombardier Q400 NextGen turboprop aircraft to lessor Nordic Aviation Capital (NAC). As of February 1 2023, the carrier now operates a fleet made up solely of Airbus A220-300s. “The last redelivery flight marks an official end to our previous stage of development. Q400, definitely, was an excellent-performance aircraft, which at the time helped us to get where we are today – flying the most efficient and greenest fleet in Europe,” said Martin Gauss, the carrier’s chief executive. The announcement came the week after Alaska Airlines said it would no longer deploy the Canadian-made turboprop.
