The Latvian low-cost airliner have now firmed up their option for seven CS300s. This means that airBaltic’s firm order for the CS300 is 20. AirBaltic will be the launch customer of the Bombardier C Series. Bombardier said that the value of this contract is $506 million, based on list prices. Here is what the CEO, Martin Gauss had to say:

“Our fleet modernisation continues as we proudly increase our all-new CS300 to a fleet of 20 technologically-advanced jetliners in order to support our ‘Horizon 2021’ business plan.  This will substantially improve the connectivity of the Baltic region with Western Europe and the Eastern markets – all of which will help stimulate the economies of Latvia, Estonia and Lithuania, and create new jobs.  The CS300 will improve our passenger experience and convenience as we position ourselves for growth, reaching new destinations due to the increased capabilities of our new jets joining us later this year.”
