On September 20, 2020 airBaltic welcomed  in Riga its 23rd Airbus A220-300 jet, registered as YL-AAW. The 23rd aircraft is one of the 50 Airbus A220-300 airBaltic has ordered. In addition, airBaltic holds 30 options for the same aircraft type. By the end of 2020 airBaltic plans to have a total of 25 Airbus A220-300 jets in its fleet. Martin Gauss, CEO of airBaltic: “The current crisis enabled us to focus on the Airbus A220-300 as the only aircraft type airBaltic will fly in the future. With our aircraft choice the focus is on sustainability that is an advantage to come out of the crisis.”

Since May 2020, airBaltic operates all of its flights with a single aircraft type – Airbus A220-300, thus minimizing the complexity and benefiting from the additional efficiency provided by the aircraft.

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.
