airBaltic Participates in A220 Demo Tour in Africa Together with Airbus

The Latvian airline airBaltic participates in an aircraft manufacturer Airbus’ demonstration tour in Africa, showcasing its A220-300 aircraft to customers, international media and other guests.

During the tour, airBaltic’s A220-300 visits two destinations in the region.

Thus far, airBaltic has carried nearly 10 170 000 passengers on the Airbus A220-300 aircraft. Airbus A220-300’s have completed more than 117 000 flights and flown over 256 000 block hours.

Since May 2020, airBaltic operates all its flights with a single aircraft type – Airbus A220-300, thus minimizing the complexity and benefiting from the additional efficiency provided by the aircraft.

The airline’s fleet now consists of 38 A220-300 with two more planned to join by the end of this year.

The Airbus A220-300 has performed beyond the company’s expectations, delivering better overall performance, fuel efficiency and convenience for both passengers and the staff.

This aircraft offers an excellent flying experience with such benefits for passengers as wider seats, larger windows, more hand luggage space in the cabin, improved lavatories and much more.
