airBaltic has welcomed the fifth of its 20 Bombardier CS300 jets to the fleet, with the carrier planning to have eight CS300 aircraft by the end of the year.
The plane, registered as YL-CSE, arrived in Riga earlier after a seven hour and 56 minute trip from Canada.
Thus far, airBaltic has completed more than 1,552 flights and flown over 3,892 block hours with the brand new Bombardier CS300 aircraft.
By the end of 2019 airBaltic is planning to have 20 Bombardier CS300 aircraft on its fleet.
With an average jet fleet age of only two years, airBaltic, as an all-Bombardier operator, will have one of the youngest jet fleets in Europe.
