Latvian airline airBaltic has welcomed its 19th Airbus A220-300 aircraft – the fifth Airbus A220-300 it has received this year.

The airline will take delivery of three more of the aircraft type by the end of the year, further growing the variant in its fleet.

Thus far, airBaltic has carried over 2,600,000 passengers on the Airbus A220-300 aircraft with every second airBaltic passenger flying on the aircraft.

Since the launch operations on 14 December 14, 2016, airBaltic Airbus A220-300’s have been in more than 35 countries and landed in over 70 airports.

Due to arrival of new Airbus A200-300 aircraft, a growing number of destinations are served by it. The latest destinations where airBaltic flies its Airbus A220-300’s are Menorca and Kos.

airBaltic will end its Boeing 737 fleet operations in autumn 2019, one year ahead of the original plan. The airline aims to minimise complexity and benefit from the additional efficiency of the Airbus A220-300 aircraft which will be the only jet type operated by airBaltic.
