Latvian airline airBaltic has become one of the first airlines to join European Union Aviation Safety Agency’s (EASA) charter for the return to normal operations under COVID-19, pledging to work with their national authorities to put measures in place to support health safety.

Pauls Cālītis, COO of airBaltic: “Safety and health of our passengers stand above all. We at airBaltic are working hard to ensure that the passengers can travel safely and with confidence and have thoroughly followed guidelines issued by both EASA and local authorities. Our dedicated and professional airBaltic team will continue work in order to safeguard airline’s smooth operations. airBaltic will provide essential feedback to European authorities, for the improvement of travel for all passengers.”

Since resuming scheduled operations on May 18, airBaltic has introduced various additional safety measures to limit the spread of the virus and protect its passengers. An example of the new proactive measures introduced is temperature screening of all airBaltic’s departing passengers at Riga Airport.
