Martin Gauss, CEO of airBaltic:

– As a growing number of Lithuanian passengers choose to use our direct services from Vilnius, we are now upgrading them to more comfortable state-of-the-art aircraft. Airbus A220-300 offers a higher level of comfort and is considerably quieter, and we continue to receive very positive feedback about the aircraft from our passengers. Now it will be available also on flights from Vilnius.”

During the first six months of 2019 airBaltic has transported over 240 000 passengers to and from Lithuania. The airline has carried 20% more passengers in Lithuania to its network spanning Europe, Scandinavia, Russia, CIS and the Middle East than during the same period last year.

From Vilnius, airBaltic offers direct flights to Amsterdam, Berlin, Munich, Paris and Tallinn as well as convenient connections via Riga.

The Airbus A220-300 has performed beyond the company’s expectations, delivering better overall performance, fuel efficiency and convenience for both passengers and staff.

This aircraft 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.

The new aircraft is also considerably quieter — with a four times smaller noise footprint. Moreover, at the moment it is the greenest commercial aircraft in the world, as it is the first aircraft to have a transparent declaration of the life-cycle environmental impact, helping to reduce CO2 and NOX emissions by 20% and 50% respectively.
