December 23, 2019 in Riga airBaltic welcomed its 22nd Airbus A220-300 jet, registered as YL-AAV. The 22ndAirbus A220-300 completes the planned new aircraft deliveries for airBaltic in 2019 and it is the second delivery of the additional order that was signed on May 28, 2018 for purchase of 30 Airbus A220-300 aircraft with options for an additional 30 aircraft of the same type. By the end of 2020 airBaltic plans to have a total of 26 Airbus A220-300 jets in its fleet. Thus far, airBaltic has carried over 4 500 000 passengers on the Airbus A220-300 aircraft with every second airBalticpassenger flying on the aircraft. Airbus A220-300’s have completed more than 44 000 flights and flown over 110 000 block hours.

The 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.

The new aircraft is also considerably quieter – with a four times smaller noise footprint. Moreover, at the moment it is the greenest commercial aircraft in the world, as it is the first aircraft to have a transparent declaration of the life-cycle environmental impact, helping to reduce CO2 and NOX emissions by 20% and 50% respectively.

airBaltic aims to minimize complexity and benefit from the additional efficiency of the Airbus A220-300 aircraft which will be the only jet type operated by airBaltic by the end of 2022.
