Martin Gauss, Chief Executive Officer of airBaltic:

– We are glad that for the second year in a row we have been recognized as the airline with the most modern aircraft fleet in Europe. Since May 2020, we operate all of our flights with a single aircraft type – Airbus A220-300, thus minimizing the complexity and benefiting from the additional efficiency provided by the aircraft. This decision has also helped to ensure significant connectivity to and from the Baltics with the rest of the world, as well as opening new opportunities for expansion in other regions. We see the Airbus A220-300 as one of our main competitive advantages from which we benefit from today and in the future.”

Thus far, most passengers have been carried to such destinations as Amsterdam, Paris, London, and Moscow. Airbus A220-300’s have completed over 86 000 flights and flown over 193 000 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.
