airBaltic Welcomes Its 47th Airbus A220

Latvia’s national airline, airBaltic, has taken delivery of its 47th Airbus A220. More specifically, it’s an A220-300 registered as YL-ABU in the carrier’s hub, Riga. What became the first aircraft delivery for 2024 is part of the 50 A220-300s on order with the European aircraft manufacturer.

In November last year, airBaltic extended its order for the said aircraft. That bumped the backlog to 80 jets of the same type. Back then, the carrier had forty-four Airbus A220-300s in operation. In fact, airBaltic is the largest operator of this single-aisle aeroplane type worldwide.

Since May 2020, airBaltic operates all its flights using the above-mentioned aircraft. To date, the airline has carried nearly 14.48 million passengers using Airbus A220-300 jets. The fleet has jointly completed over 160,000 flights and flown 352,000 block hours.
