Lithuanian charter carrier Small Planet Airlines is replacing its fleet of older generation Boeing 737s for an all-Airbus fleet of A320s.


By the end of 2013 the company plans on having an all-Airbus
fleet across its two Air Operator Certificates (AOC) in Lithuania and
Poland, a decision based mainly on leasing opportunities. The company
recently returned its two leased Boeing 737-300s and leased five new A320s.

"The decision to change from Boeing to Airbus was made more than
two years ago," Vytautas Kaikaris, CEO of Small Planet Airlines, said in
an email to Aviation Today. "At the time when we decided to upgrade our
fleet from 737 Classics, the first option was 737-800s. However, these
planes were scarce (and continue to be scarce) in the leasing market and
therefore we opted for A320s which we found more available and of very
similar qualities as Boeing NG."

Kaikaris recently took over a 70 percent stake
in Small Planet Airlines from the Avia Solutions Group, which sold its
95 percent ownership share to Kaikaris and Chief Quality Officer Andrius
Staniulis.

Small Planet currently operates four A320s and will add three more by June.
