airBaltic receives 14th Airbus A220-300

airBaltic received its last Airbus A220-300 aircraft for the year on Saturday (1 December) bringing the number of the Airbus variant to 14 in the Riga-based carrier’s fleet.

This year, airBaltic has carried over 1.85 million passengers on the Airbus A220-300 aircraft with every third airBaltic passenger flying on the aircraft. By the end of the 2019 airBaltic plans to have 22 Airbus A220-300 aircraft in its fleet.

Since the launch operations on 14 December, 2016, the airline’s Airbus A220-300’s have been in more than 35 countries and landed in over 70 airports. Most often the aircraft flies to Moscow, Amsterdam, Paris, London and Barcelona.

This summer airBaltic launched an improved cabin with new, comfortable seats on its latest three Airbus A220-300 aircraft. Passengers now benefit from such additional improvements as more legroom, new pockets behind the seats for magazines, as well as hangers next to the seat for jackets.

airBaltic serves over 70 destinations from Riga, Tallinn and Vilnius. For summer 2019 it has introduced three new destinations from Tallinn to Malaga, Brussels and Copenhagen. In addition, next summer it will launch new direct routes from Riga to Stuttgart and Lviv.
