In a statement, airBaltic said the following on receiving it’s 45th Airbus A220-300 aircraft:

“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.”

“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.”

“In addition, the aircraft is also considerably quieter – with a twice times smaller noise footprint when compared to the previous generation aircraft.”

“Moreover, at the moment it is the most efficient commercial aircraft in the world with a transparent declaration of the life-cycle environmental impact, helping to reduce CO2 and NOX emissions by 25% and 50% respectively in comparison with the previous generation aircraft and industry standards.”

At the Dubai Airshow, the carrier placed an order for another 30 A220-300s, with options for 20 more, meaning they will become the largest operator of the type in Europe in the next few years.
