"Air Baltic" refuses operation of turboprop aircraft

Air Baltic Airlines intends to abandon the use of turboprop aircraft.

The management of the Latvian national air carrier Air Baltic announced its readiness to abandon the use of turboprop aircraft, and active negotiations are currently under way with the Brazilian company Embraer and the Canadian company Bombardier on the delivery of jet aircraft.

It should be noted that the main reason for refusing to operate turboprop passenger airplanes is their low efficiency in performing flights, because in fact, the demand for flights is large, so the use of these aircraft does not provide a rational approach to operating.
