From May 2022, the Latvian airline Air Baltic will fly two Airbus A220-300s on behalf of Eurowings Discover under a wet lease agreement. The two medium-haul jets will be based at Munich Airport, a spokeswoman confirmed to Aviation.Direct.
The agreement between the two airlines is initially limited to October 2022. A media officer from Eurowings Discover told Aviation.Direct: “We can confirm that Air Baltic will be operating two aircraft under a wet lease for Eurowings Discover next summer. The two Airbus 220 will be used from May to October on short and medium-haul routes from Munich. The two aircraft will also be used in order to be able to react accordingly to the expected demand in the summer. As planned, the Eurowings Discover fleet will grow to 21 aircraft over the course of the year, with five Airbus 320s then being stationed in Munich.”
The sister company Eurowings is also relying on Air Baltic’s wet lease services for the 2022 summer flight schedule. Five Airbus A220 will be used from Düsseldorf. Next will Avion Express operate seven A320s from Stuttgart and three from the state capital of North Rhine-Westphalia for Eurowings. Air Baltic will fly until the end of the 2021/22 winter timetable period with two A220 from Stuttgart for Eurowings.
