In 2019, we continued our sustainable growth path and showed strong results that will help us to pave our future path, strengthening our role as the largest carrier in the region. Last year we launched nine new routes, and, by adding more Airbus A220-300 to our fleet, increased the comfort and reliability of our flights. Already now majority of our passengers fly on the Airbus A220-300 aircraft. ”
