The Latvian airline airBaltic is planning to recruit around 1,000 professionals over the next five years, to support the carrier’s growth under Horizon2021 business plan. 

Daiga Ergle, SVP Human Resources of airBaltic: “airBaltic is scheduled to take delivery of its first Bombardier CS300 aircraft in the fourth quarter of 2016. This will create new and better flight connections for the Baltic region, along with opening new job opportunities. We kick off this recruitment campaign by organising an “open door” event for young professionals who want to join our award-winning team of Cabin Crew.”
