Dear Customer,

Partnerships with other airlines are of vital importance to airBaltic, as they permit us to offer a wide variety of destinations to our travellers, since global reach is beyond the capacity of any single airline.

That is why our code-share partners represent some of the world’s leading airlines. One of these is British Airways, the UK’s largest international airline, which we are very pleased to add to our growing family of associates. Riga to London is by far the most popular route for travellers starting or finishing their journey in the Baltic region. Our new agreement with British Airways will give a boost to travel from this region and enable airBaltic passengers to reach additional destinations served from
London Gatwick Airport.

Partnerships are also key when it comes to environmentally sustainable operations. Having received valuable contributions and input from our global, European and Latvian partners, we have just completed an important milestone in airBaltic’s initiative to become the first airline in Europe to start green flying for turboprop aircraft. The project, known as AMBER, will shorten the distances flown, improve flight trajectories to avoid residential areas and reduce people’s exposure to noise, as well as cut fuel consumption and emissions. The new trajectories will be up to 30 nautical miles shorter towards the Riga airport runway than what is being flown today and will enable the reduction of CO2 emissions by up to 300 kilograms on every Bombardier Q400 flight. When rolled out to its full scale, this green flying will reduce CO2 emissions by 5,000,000 kilograms annually for airBaltic.

Did you know that our Riga-Copenhagen route has just recorded its two millionth passenger and that our aircraft have travelled over 30 million kilometres between the two capitals?

Thank you for flying airBaltic and have a great trip!
