airBaltic takes tenth A220-300

The Latvian airline airBaltic has taken delivery of its tenth Airbus A220-300 aircraft, the rebranded CS300.

“This is the first Airbus A220-300 aircraft we have received since Airbus officially overtook the programme,” said Martin Gauss, CEO. “We are proud of being the global launch operator of this aircraft type, and having such a strong partner like Airbus only benefits our airline.”

“As initially planned, we are further improving our Airbus A220-300 fleet with several upgrades in the cabin design. We are delighted that our passengers appreciate the comfort that the Airbus A220-300 aircraft offers,” he added.

The airline has launched an improved cabin on its latest two A220-300 aircraft with new seats featuring more legroom, new magazine pockets and hangers. All of the airline’s A220-300 aircraft will get the improved cabin.

Gauss continued: “By the end of 2018, we are planning to have a total of 14 Airbus A220-300 aircraft in our fleet therefore even more passengers will have the possibility to fly on the most modern aircraft.”

In May this year airBaltic announced a firm purchase agreement for 30 A220-300 aircraft with options for an additional 30 of the same type. The order complemented its existing one for 20 A220-300s and forms the backbone of its business plan Destination 2025.
