airBaltic to phase out its Boeing 737 fleet in 2019

Baku, February 20, AZERTAC

Latvian airline airBaltic announces that it will end its Boeing 737 fleet operations in autumn 2019, one year ahead of the original plan. The airline aims to minimize complexity and benefit from the additional efficiency of the Airbus A220-300 aircraft which will be the only jet type operated by airBaltic.

So far airBaltic has received 14 of its Airbus A220-300 orders and eight new aircraft will join this year.

The Airbus A220-300 has performed beyond company’s expectations, delivering better overall performance, fuel efficiency and convenience for both passengers and staff. In late 2018, airBaltic phased out three of its Boeing 737-500 aircraft. Currently the airline still operates six Boeing 737-300 and two Boeing 737-500 jets.

The Airbus A220-300 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.
