Recently, on August 8th, AirBaltic unveiled the highly anticipated livery dedicated to its services in Lithuania. The aircraft, painted in special Lithuanian colors, is an Airbus A220-300 registered YL-CSK. The livery is the latest and final representing a flag of one of the three Baltic States.
CEO of AirBaltic, Martin Gauss, said: “We are committed to the Baltic states and will continue our sustainable growth path helping the future development of Latvia, Estonia, and Lithuania. The airBaltic team is delighted to present this new livery to its Lithuanian passengers. Now the flags of all three Baltic states will proudly wave above our heads high in the skies.”
Magnetic MRO Operations Manager Kaspars Podins highlighted that for this livery to be painted on the A220, it required 15 professional painters and 1000-man hours.
According to the press release by AirBaltic, during the first half of 2019, airBaltic transported over 240 thousand passengers, which is 20% more than the same period last year. The first AirBaltic A220 will be stationed at Vilnius starting from the winter season of 2019.
