airBaltic passengers down 73% in 2020

Latvian airline airBaltic in 2020 has carried 1 340 000 passengers or 73% less than the year before. In 2020, the airline performed 22 300 flights from all three Baltic states.


Martin Gauss, Chief Executive Officer of airBaltic: “2020 will go in history as the toughest year commercial aviation has yet seen. For most of the year, we were able to maintain essential connectivity for Riga and the Baltics. However, a significant part of the GDP drop in the region can be attributed to the fact that we are limited to fly. It is crucial for the future development of the Baltic region that airBaltic returns to its growth path following the successful control of the pandemic.”

“During the year 2020 we have certainly experienced our most difficult challenges but together with tremendous efforts and hard work we have ensured that airBaltic remains and continues its operation. We have given a clear commitment to grow back above old levels. Our vision sees airBaltic becoming a sustainable carrier in the EU aviation market, while maintaining a continuous growth path and innovative improvement of passenger experience,” Martin Gauss added.
