airBaltic takes delivery of 36th Airbus A220-300 jet

Latvian flag-carrier airBaltic has taken delivery of 36th Airbus A220-300 aircraft, registered as YL-ABJ. This is the fourth of eight planned A220-300 aircraft deliveries in 2022. 

According to airBaltic, the airline has carried approximately 8 million passengers and completed more than 92 000 flights on the Airbus A220-300 aircraft. 

By 2024, the airline expects to have a total of 50 A220-300s. In addition, airBaltic has options to purchase an extra 30 A220-300 jets. The airline is currently the world's largest operator of the Airbus A220-300. 

In mid-April 2022, airBaltic said it would wet-lease a portion of its A220s to other airlines for summer 2022 after the carrier was forced to cease operations in Ukraine and Russia owning to the ongoing war.  

airBaltic has already signed contracts for nine A220s to be leased on an ACMI basis to Scandinavian Airline Systems (SAS) and Eurowings. airBaltic is also in the process of signing wet-lease contracts for an additional two aircraft freed up from Ukrainian and Russian destinations.
