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 A/S Air Baltic Corporation (airBaltic) was founded in 1995. airBaltic is a hybrid airline taking the best practices both from traditional network airlines and low cost carriers. The airBaltic Group employs around 1200 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 in its network spanning Europe, Scandinavia, Russia, 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. Tickets are available not only for direct but also for transfer flights. 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 three Baltic capitals – Riga (Latvia), Vilnius (Lithuania) and Tallinn (Estonia), as well as Frankfurt and Dortmund (Germany).
