On August 11th 2017, the airline welcomed the seventh Bombardier CS300 out of a total order of 20 aircraft to the fleet. By the end of this year, airBaltic plans to have eight CS300 aircraft.

The seventh airBaltic CS300 aircraft, registered as YL-CSG arrived in Riga at 10.46, local time on the 11th after a 7 hour and 13 minute flight direct non-stop from Montreal-Mirabel, a total distance of 6382 km's.
