airBaltic’s five-year business plan Horizon 2021 has shown a strong start. Our new direct routes from the Baltic capitals to Western Europe, launched under the umbrella of this plan, have enjoyed strong appeal with you, our customer. We are very grateful for your choice of flights with our airline. As a result, airBaltic has seen double-digit growth in the number of passengers during the first quarter of this year. Due to this increased travel activity, we can add flights on popular routes and further lower our prices to destinations in Europe and the East.

When pilots Jānis Krištops and Pāvels Timofejevs joined airBaltic seven years ago, they decided that it might be a good idea to train for marathon races. Since then, they have run nine marathons and 20 half-marathons between the two of them. This March, Krištops and his colleague Captain Jānis Kolontajs ran a marathon together in Portugal. And later this month, Timofejevs will try to complete the Lattelecom Riga marathon together with several other airBaltic employees. “We are running not for the sake of sport, but to keep in shape,” says Krištops with a laugh, adding that a three kilometre-long runway would be perfect for a collective run by airBaltic’s staff members.
