December 21, 2023, airBaltic welcomed its 46th Airbus A220-300 jet, registered as YL-ABT, in Riga. This is the seventh Airbus A220-300 delivery for airBaltic in 2023. It is a part of the 50 Airbus A220-300 which airBaltic has ordered. Furthermore, the company has announced a firm purchase agreement for 30 more Airbus A220-300 aircraft with purchase rights for an additional 20 aircraft of the same type.

Thus far, airBaltic has carried more than 13 441 000 passengers on the Airbus A220-300 aircraft. Airbus A220-300s of the airline have completed over 150 000 flights and flown 328 000 block hours. Since May 2020, airBaltic operates all its flights with a single aircraft type – Airbus A220-300, thus minimizing the complexity and benefiting from the additional efficiency provided by the aircraft.

Airbus A220-300 has performed beyond the company’s expectations, delivering better overall performance, fuel efficiency and convenience for both passengers and the staff. This aircraft offers an excellent flying experience with such benefits for passengers as wider seats, larger windows, more hand luggage space in the cabin, improved lavatories and much more.

Moreover, at the moment it is the most efficient commercial aircraft in the world with a transparent declaration of the life-cycle environmental impact, helping to reduce CO2 and NOX emissions by 25% and 50% respectively in comparison with the previous generation aircraft and industry standards.
