airBaltic identifies potential bases in Europe

27 May, 2019

airBaltic CEO Martin Gauss said the carrier identified airports in Europe that could serve as bases should the carrier exercise options for 30 A220-300 aircraft (Routes Online, 24-May-2019). Mr Gauss said: "It would be a point-to-point operation to other countries outside the Baltics". Mr Gauss added: "Our business plan calls for up to 50 A220s to be based here - expanding from Riga which stays a hub and spoke airport - but also Tallinn and Vilnius; we're adding aircraft to these two bases".
