airBaltic Becomes World’s First Airline to Operate CS300 Aircraft

Bombardier has delivered the first CS300 aircraft to launch operator airBaltic, the flag carrier of Latvia.

 The CS300 is the larger variant of Bombardier’s all new C Series aircraft, which is designed to carry between 130 and 150 passengers.

 The handover to airBaltic comes just five months after the successful entry into service of the CS100 variant of the C Series.

“We are thrilled to be taking home the first CS300 aircraft – the newest member of the most innovative and technologically advanced family of airliners in the world,” said Martin Gauss, Chief Executive Officer, airBaltic. “With its longer range capabilities, lower fuel burn and reduced noise emissions compared to other airliners in its segment, the CS300 aircraft will enable airBaltic to open new routes and connect people all across Europe, while offering passengers an unparalleled in-flight experience.

The maiden commercial flight of airBaltic’s first CS300 aircraft, which will take passengers from Riga to Amsterdam, is scheduled for 14 December 2016.
