During August 2020, the Latvian airline carried 137 830 passengers, 9% less than in July 2020 from all three Baltic capitals to its network spanning Europe.

Martin Gauss, Chief Executive Officer of airBaltic: “August was the third full month of scheduled operations for airBaltic and perhaps the toughest yet. After a relatively solid July, due to widespread self-isolation requirements, demand for our services once again dropped. Still, we will maintain connectivity for those customers that need to travel and we are sure that demand will increase once the self-isolation rules will be changed.”
