airBaltic introduces an Airbus A220 adorned with the Estonian flag

Tallinn, Estonia - After an Airbus A220 in the colors of the Latvian flag, airBaltic has now revealed another aircraft featuring the Estonian flag.

The new livery of airBaltic with Estonian flag attributes to the growing position of the airline in the Estonian capital.

airBaltic is the largest carrier in the Baltic region with bases in Riga, Tallinn, and Vilnius.

airBaltic aims to position itself as the flag carrier of the entire Baltic region. The airline consolidated its status as the market leader in Estonia after the Estonian flag carrier Nordica ended its scheduled flight operations under its own brand.

airBaltic had around %26 market share in Estonia before Nordica ceased operations.

The Baltic carrier currently operates 19 Airbus A220-300 and has 31 further aircraft of the same type on order with the European aircraft manufacturer.

airBaltic's CEO Martin Gauss has recently said that his company would consider the newly launched extra-long-range single-aisle jet A321XLR in the future to fly to the destinations in the United States from Riga or the other Baltic cities.

There are no direct long-haul flights from any of the three Baltic bases of the airline.

airBaltic considers adding Airbus A321XLR in the long-run
