Comments from airBaltic CEO
Martin Gauss, Chief Executive Officer of airBaltic said, “At the beginning of the winter season, we will launch our first-ever scheduled flights to Africa – Marrakesh in Morocco – and add our second destination on the Canary Islands – Gran Canaria. When preparing a schedule for next season, we always evaluate passenger demand and analyze the market situation.”
Gaus added, “Based on the results, we have made a decision to cancel a few commercially unviable routes. At the same time, as we see the demand increase for business travel, on a number of routes such as Tallinn, Helsinki, Stockholm, and Brussels we have increased the frequency significantly compared with the previous winter.”
