airBaltic operates a fleet of 20 Airbus A220-300 aircraft.
In the first two years of the aircraft's operation, the airline replaced 50 engines. Having just 13 aircraft in that period means that almost every engine was replaced twice on average.
Yesterday, SWISS grounded its entire fleet of Airbus A220 aircraft pending detailed engine checks. The flag carrier of Switzerland encountered a third serious engine issue in the space of four months. As a result, the carrier decided that none of its A220 aircraft were to fly until detailed checks had been undertaken.
While this led to a number of flight cancellations, the first A220s have already been checked and re-entered service.
