Griffin Global Asset Management has this week confirmed an order with Airbus for six A220 aircraft, with them destined to Croatia Airlines starting from 2026.
These aircraft will be utilised for further growth within the airline, as they seek to branch out across the rest of Europe further.
Without further ado, let’s get into it…
