Air Baltic has taken delivery of a new Bombardier Q400 aircraft under an operating lease from Nordic Aviation Capital.

The aircraft (MSN 4438) is the first of four Q400s to be leased by the Latvian low-cost carrier.

Air Baltic will operate the four aircraft in addition to eight Q400s it ordered from the manufacturer last year. It has placed a firm order for 10 CSeries CS300 aircraft as it adopts an all-Bombardier fleet to replace older turboprops.

Nordic Aviation Capital signed a purchase deal for four Q400s with Bombardier last month.
