Bombardier has delivered the first CS300 aircraft to Latvia’s airBaltic.

The CS300, the first of an order for 20 from the Latvian flag carrier, was handed over at Bombardier’s Montreal plant in Canada.

“We are thrilled to be taking home the first CS300 aircraft,” airBaltic chief executive Martin Gauss said. It will “enable airBaltic to open new routes and connect people all across Europe,” he added.

The CS300 is the larger of the two CSeries aircraft from Bombardier. airBaltic will operate it in an all-economy configuration with 148 seats. Its first commercial flight is scheduled for December 14, from Riga to Amsterdam.
