The Latvian airline airBaltic received the tenth Airbus A220-300 aircraft, registered as YL-CSJ, in Riga on July 20. By the end of 2018, airBaltic plans to have a total of 14 A220-300 aircraft on its fleet.
Martin Gauss, CEO of airBaltic: “This is the first Airbus A220-300 aircraft we have received since Airbus officially overtook the program. We are proud of being the global launch operator of this aircraft type, and having such a strong partner like Airbus only benefits our airline.”
“By the end of 2018, we are planning to have a total of 14 Airbus A220-300 aircraft in our fleet therefore even more passengers will have the possibility to fly on the most modern aircraft,” adds Gauss.
On May 28, 2018, airBaltic announced a firm purchase agreement for the sale and purchase of 30 Airbus A220-300 aircraft with options for an additional 30 aircraft of the same type. The order complements the existing order of 20 A220-300 aircraft.
