AirBaltic takes delivery of new A220-300

Latvian airline airBaltic has taken delivery of a new A220-300, marking the 21st aircraft of this type to be introduced into its fleet.

This is the first delivery of the additional order that was signed on May 28, 2018, for purchase of 30 Airbus A220-300 aircraft with options for an additional 30 aircraft of the same type.

Till the end of 2019, airBaltic plans to have a total of 22 Airbus A220-300 aircraft in its fleet, but by the end of 2020 – 26.

Martin Gauss, chief executive officer of airBaltic, said: “We are truly proud to be the launch operator of the Airbus A220-300 aircraft which, being an integral part of airBaltic’s fleet over the last three years has demonstrated an outstanding performance.

“To introduce this aircraft was a forward-thinking decision that has most certainly paid off as A220 family aircraft are not only considerably more fuel-efficient and environmentally friendly, but also more convenient for both passengers and staff.

“The vision of an all-Airbus A220 fleet by 2023 is the backbone of airBaltic’s Destination 2025business plan and the celebration of our 21st A220-300aircraft from the newest order marks another step towards the set aim.”

The Airbus A220-300 aircraft will be the only jet type operated by airBaltic by the end of 2022.
