The latest in airBaltic’s line of 20 incoming CS300s has landed in Latvia, with the seventh aircraft from Bombardier touching down earlier today (Friday) in Riga.
The airline – the launch operator for the CS300 – is scheduled to have eight in its possession by the end of this year. The Latvian carrier received the aircraft, registered YL-CSG, after it travelled 6,382 km non-stop between Montreal-Mirabel and Riga in a flight time of seven hours and 13 minutes.
airBaltic has so far carried more than 300,000 passengers on its CS300 fleet, and completed more than 2,613 scheduled flights, flying over 6,751 block hours with the new aircraft. It plans to have 20 in its fleet by the end of 2019. By 2021, as an all-Bombardier operator, airBaltic says it will have one of the youngest jet fleets in Europe.
