RIGA — On Dec. 17, The Latvian airline airBaltic made a delivery flight of its last remaining Boeing 737 aircraft, YL-BBX, to its new owner Magnetic MRO. Earlier this year Magnetic MRO acquired three Boeing 737 aircraft from airBaltic.

Martin Gauss, CEO of airBaltic: “Since May 2020, airBaltic operates all of its flights with a single aircraft type – Airbus A220-300, thus minimizing the complexity and benefiting from the additional efficiency provided by the aircraft. Yet Boeing 737 aircraft were a notable part of the airBaltic fleet for 17 years. They served as our breakthrough, helping to establish ourselves as a strong regional carrier.”
