We are excited to engage with Airlines for Europe – the most important and influential Brussels-based airline association – and its member airlines on their way to form a strong, joint group for all airlines in Europe. Representing the Eastern European hemisphere we will deliver new, important insights of smaller but fast growing markets within the European Union. I am convinced that this will to the benefit of all European passengers.

Martin Gauss
CEO airBaltic

Latvian airline airBaltic (A/S Air Baltic Corporation) was founded in 1995. airBaltic is a hybrid airline taking the best practices both from traditional network airlines and low cost carriers. airBaltic employs more than 1500 people, the majority of whom are directly involved in flight operations.

In 2008, airBaltic changed its operating model from a point-to-point carrier to a network airline making Riga a connecting hub between East and West.

The top priorities of airBaltic are – safety, punctuality and service.

The airline offers low fare tickets to its network spanning Europe, Scandinavia, Russia, the CIS and the Middle East. The prices are competitive not only with other airlines, but also with the prices of bus, car, train or ferry travel. A wide range of additional services is offered to enhance the travel experience before, during and after the flight.

Currently, airBaltic operates direct flights out of all three Baltic capitals – Riga (Latvia), Tallinn (Estonia) and Vilnius (Lithuania). In addition, airBaltic offers convenient connections via Riga to its network spanning Europe, Scandinavia, Russia, the CIS and the Middle East.

As of March 2019, airBaltic fleet consists of 34 aircraft – 14 Airbus A220-300, 8 Boeing 737 and 12 Bombardier Q400 NextGen, in total – 25 aircraft. By 2024, airBaltic plans to have a single type fleet of up to 80 Airbus A220-300 aircraft.
