airBaltic welcomes its 11th Airbus A220-300

Latvian carrier airBaltic welcomed its 11th Airbus A220-300 aircraft in Riga on Saturday (25 August) and by the end of 2018 the airline plans to have 14 A220-300s in its fleet.

airBaltic has carried over 1,450,000 passengers on the A220-300 aircraft to date with every third airBaltic passenger flying on the aircraft. The A220-300’s have completed more than 14,000 flights and flown over 37,800 block hours.

Since the launch operations on 14 December, 2016, the A220-300s have been in 35 countries and landed in 70 airports. Most fly to Moscow, Amsterdam, Paris, London and Barcelona.

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

All airBaltic A220-300 aircraft will eventually get the improved cabin.
