Latvian airline airBaltic has successfully completed its first scheduled C check on an Airbus A220-300 aircraft. Two months ago, airBaltic became the first airline entitled to provide a full scope of maintenance for Airbus A220-300 aircraft type.

Andris Vaivads, SVP Technical Operations of airBaltic: “After carrying more than 400 000 passengers, our first Airbus A220-300, registered as YL-CSA, has now successfully undergone a scheduled C check and received a number of other modifications which are necessary to further improve the reliability of the aircraft. During the winter season, we plan to perform C check on six more Airbus A220-300 aircraft.”

“Obtaining the Line Maintenance and Base Maintenance certificate for Airbus A220-300 type has been a logical step for airBaltic as an airline which is the global launch operator of Airbus A220-330 with already 20 aircraft of this type in its fleet moving towards single type Airbus A220-300 fleet in the near future. Our maintenance is now more cost and time effective,” Andris Vaivads added.

C check is a part of the aircraft maintenance program that has to be performed on all commercial aircraft after a certain time of usage. For Airbus A220-300, manufacturer has defined that a C check has to be performed every 8 500 flight hours.

The Airbus A220-300 has performed beyond the company’s expectations, delivering better overall performance, fuel efficiency and convenience for both passengers and 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.
