airBaltic to fly Airbus 220-300 aircraft by 2025

Business travelers can expect wider seats, larger windows and more cabin space.

The Baltic’s leading airline recently announced that by 2025, its fleet will be replaced with a single aircraft–the Airbus 220-300. The new Airbus aircraft will replace the Boeing 737 and Bombardier Q400 Turboprop aircraft currently operated by the airline.

The airline currently has 11 Airbus 220-300 aircraft in operation. The Airbus 220-300 offers an excellent flying experience with passenger benefits including wider seats, larger windows, more cabin space for hand luggage, improved lavatories and more. The new aircraft is also much quieter, with a four times smaller noise footprint. At the moment, the Airbus 220-300 is the greenest commercial aircraft in the world, and it is the first aircraft to offer a transparent declaration of its life-cycle environmental impact, helping to reduce CO2 and NOX emissions by 20% and 50% respectively.

AirBaltic flies to over 70 destinations from Riga, Tallinn and Vilnius, offering a variety of destination and convenient connections via Riga to a network spanning Europe, Scandinavia, the CIS and the Middle East. For summer 2018, airBaltic introduced eight new destinations from Riga: Malaga, Lisbon, Split, Bordeaux, Gdansk, Almaty, Sochi and Kaliningrad. In 2019, Stuttgart will join the airBaltic network, in addition to three new direct routes from Tallinn.

AirBaltic operates one of the youngest fleets in Europe. They are the no. 1 airline in the Baltic region and the world’s most punctual airline, having received global awards in 2014, 2015 and 2017. They’re noted for affordable flights, great onboard service, an innovative approach and a wonderful flying experience.
