The first day of 2023 Dubai Airshow produced a few more commercial interesting announcements. And they weren’t all from airlines in the region. airBaltic ordered more Airbus A220s, SunExpress more MAX 8s and -10s, Egyptair secured long-term leases for the MAX, Royal Jordanian and Royal Air Maroc ordered more Dreamliners.
It has been long and sometimes difficult discussions, said CEO Martin Gauss, but eventually the outcome was good as airBaltic announced a follow-on order for more Airbus A200-300s. The carrier has placed an order for 30 firm aircraft plus 20 purchase rights. Once confirmed, airBaltic will have 100 A220-300s by 2030, becoming the largest operator of the type. The first aircraft of the new order will be delivered in Q4 2026.
