Latvia's airBaltic Increases Firm C Series Orders
Posted: 2016 Apr 13
 
Latvian flag carrier Air Baltic Corporation AS (airBaltic) and Bombardier have entered into a firm agreement to convert seven option aircraft to firm orders.The Riga-based airline already operates a fleet of 12 Q400 turboprop aircraft and will be the first customer in the world to operate the CS300 aircraft. It is scheduled to take delivery of the first CS300 aircraft in the second half of 2016. 
 
“Our fleet modernization continues as we proudly increase our all-new CS300 aircraft to a fleet of 20 technologically-advanced jetliners in order to support our ‘Horizon 2021’ business plan. This will substantially improve the connectivity of the Baltic region with Western Europe and the Eastern markets – all of which will help stimulate the economies of Latvia, Estonia and Lithuania, and create new jobs,” said Martin Gauss, Chief Executive Officer, airBaltic. 
 
The Riga-based airline is transitioning to an all-Bombardier fleet and airBaltic’s total firm orders for the CS300 now stand at 20 aircraft. The original order for 10 firm CS300 aircraft with options for another 10 was announced on December 20, 2012 and the airline later converted three options to firm orders in February 2014. 
 
Bombardier has received orders and commitments for 678 C Series aircraft, out of which firm orders stand at 250.
