Dear Customer,

This is a month for very special people. You are special when you travel to meet your family and loved ones. You are all the more special when your journey involves a historic flight, and you have plenty of chances for that in December.

We are very proud that airBaltic is the first carrier in the world to introduce the Bombardier CS300. The first CS300 had already taken to the sky in Montreal, Canada, as this magazine went to print. The jet is scheduled to make its global debut on our Riga- Amsterdam route, followed soon after by flights to Tallinn, Vilnius, Munich, Paris, London, Stockholm, Helsinki, Frankfurt and Barcelona. So, indeed, you may well be taking the first historic flight on our all-new jet airliner out of your airport this Christmas season.

We hope that you enjoy the wider seats, larger windows, high-capacity overhead bins, better lavatories, ambient lighting and other enhancements that you can discover while flying on this great new aircraft. Our dedicated teams will do their best to make this trip very special for you, as the CS300 gradually becomes the main jet aircraft in our fleet and sets new standards in the airline industry.

We at airBaltic had a very successful year, which was marked by a growing number of customers, the arrival of the CS300 and the opening of additional routes. This all represents a great foundation for an even better year to come. On behalf of the whole airBaltic team, we would like to share our positive emotions with you by wishing you and your loved ones a warm Christmas time and a good start to the New Year.
