Riga, 11.11.2015.

In the past four days the number of airbaltic tickets sold has tripled in Estonia as the local carrier exited the market. airBaltic will continue to offer more flights and do its best to assist its Estonian customers, affected by the suspension of operations of the local airline.

Christophe Viatte, Chief Commercial Officer of airBaltic: “airBaltic clearly has the lowest costs compared to the solution Estonians are currently using.  We are thankful to our Estonian customers who are choosing airBaltic as their carrier. We are very happy to see that our ticket sales have almost tripled in the past four days compared to the same period a year ago. We will strengthen our service in Estonia by connecting the country increasingly better as a part of our Horizon 2021 business plan, supported by our new investor.”

Earlier this summer airBaltic announced a new business plan Horizon 2021 that focuses on considerable improvement of connectivity in the whole Baltic region. airBaltic Horizon 2021 aims at operating 11 direct routes out of Tallinn and Vilnius, and over 60 direct routes out of Riga in the next five years. Our strengthening of direct services in the Baltic Sea region (Horizon 2021) will require a careful re-evaluation of airBaltic fleet for the coming years, especially our regional aircraft.

airBaltic already offers four direct routes out of Tallinn: Tallinn – Riga, Tallinn – Berlin, Tallinn – Paris and Tallinn – Vienna. airBaltic serves over 60 destinations from its home base in Riga, Latvia. From every one of these locations, airBaltic offers convenient connections via Riga to its network spanning Europe, Scandinavia, Russia, CIS and the Middle East. In addition, airBaltic also offers new direct flights from Tallinn and Vilnius.
