airBaltic paints YL-CSJ in the flag colors of Estonia

airBaltic has made this announcement:

Due to the growing popularity of airBaltic services in Estonia, last weekend airBaltic completed the paintwork on one of its Airbus A220-300 aircraft at Magnetic MRO facilities at Lennart Meri Tallinn Airport. Now airBaltic’s Airbus A220-300 aircraft registered as YL-CSJ is carrying the colors of the Estonian flag and the name of its capital – Tallinn.

To create this artwork, 15 professional painters worked for 1 000 hours. In total, 250 liters of primer, paint and lacquer were used to cover the aircraft, which constitutes the layer of 120 microns or 0.12 mm.

During the first five months of 2019 airBaltic has transported over 210 000 passengers to and from Estonia. The airline has carried 31% more passengers in Estonia to its network spanning Europe, Scandinavia, Russia, CIS and the Middle East than during the same period last year.

airBaltic offers the best connectivity to and from Tallinn, fostering better business relations and more leisure travel opportunities to and from the Estonian capital. Following growing local demand, airBaltic has been increasing its presence in Estonia, by adding more direct destinations from Tallinn Airport. By launching three new direct routes this year, airBaltic now offers a total of 12 direct services from Tallinn.

As of June, airBaltic is basing two of its Airbus A220-300 in Tallinn. It is the greenest commercial aircraft currently available. It is the first aircraft to have a transparent declaration of the life-cycle environmental impact, helping to reduce CO2 and NOX emissions by 20% and 50% respectively.

airBaltic serves over 70 destinations from Riga, Tallinn and Vilnius, offering the largest variety of destinations and convenient connections via Riga to its network spanning Europe, Scandinavia, the CIS and the Middle East. In the summer season 2019, airBaltic has launched new destinations from Riga to Dublin, Stuttgart and Lviv as well as to Kos and Menorca.
