To celebrate the 26th anniversary of the Latvian airline airBaltic, one of the students of the airBaltic Pilot Academy created a unique drawing of the number 26 across the Latvian sky.
The flight was a part of the student regular training at the airBaltic Pilot Academy and was performed together with an experienced instructor. Diamond DA40, the most efficient training aircraft available, was used to perform the flight.
Martin Gauss, Chief Executive Officer of airBaltic: “Since the pandemic began, airBaltic has undergone significant transformation, accelerating change that is necessary for future growth.
“We have achieved major milestones over the past 26 years and we are well equipped to come out of this crisis even stronger than before.
“We are thankful to our employees, passengers and partners for being with us together on this journey.”
The airline was established in the early autumn of 1995 with the signing of a joint venture between the Latvian state and Scandinavian Airlines (SAS).
On October 1, airBaltic operated its first commercial flight, from Riga to Stockholm, with the Saab SF340 aircraft.
