Latvian carrier Air Baltic has unveiled a special livery incorporating the colours of the Lithuanian flag.
The airline said that the design had been created “due to the growing demand of Air Baltic services in Lithuania”, with the A220-300 aircraft also sporting the name Vilnius, the capital of Lithuania.
The livery took 15 painters a total of 1,000 man hours to complete, using 250 litres of primer, paint and lacquer.
The new design follows the unveiling of an A220 painted in the colours of the Latvian flag in November, followed by another aircraft inspired by the Estonian flag earlier this year.
Commenting on the livery Martin Gauss, CEO of Air Baltic said:
“We are proud to provide the best connectivity to and from the Baltics. Today, we offer more than 80 direct routes from the Baltics. We are committed to the Baltic states and will continue our sustainable growth path helping the future development of Latvia, Estonia, and Lithuania.
“[The] Air Baltic team is delighted to present this new livery to its Lithuanian passengers. Now the flags of all three Baltic states will proudly wave above our heads high in the skies.”
Air Baltic carried 20 per cent more passengers from Lithuania during the first six months of this year compared to the same period in 2018, and will base one of its A220-300 aircraft at Vilnius airport from the start of the winter season.
