Latvian airline airBaltic has been recognized by the web-based service provider ch-aviation as the winner of the Europe’s Second Youngest Aircraft Fleet Award 2023 with an average fleet age of 3.8 years.
Martin Gauss, Chief Executive Officer of airBaltic: “We are glad to have been recognized among airlines with the most modern aircraft fleet in Europe.
“Since May 2020, we operate all of our flights with a single aircraft type – Airbus A220-300 – minimizing the complexity and benefiting from the additional efficiency provided by the aircraft.”
“Airbus A220-300 is the backbone of airBaltic operations, and having a single type fleet has helped us to ensure significant connectivity to and from the Baltics. We see this aircraft type as one of our main competitive advantages which we benefit from today and in the future”.
The ch-aviation Youngest Aircraft Fleet Award recognizes airlines worldwide for keeping their fleet young, modern, and efficient.
To determine which airlines currently operate the youngest aircraft fleets, ch-aviation maintains an extensive aircraft database consisting of more than 4 800 active operators and more than 69 000 aircraft worldwide.
