airBaltic starts the summer season strongly, carrying 365 200 passengers in April 2024 – an 11% increase compared to the same period last year.

These are the second-highest passenger numbers carried in April in the airline’s history. In April, airBaltic operated 3 750 flights, marking a 15% increase from the previous year.

Martin Gauss, President and CEO of airBaltic: “The month-to-month growth in passenger numbers shows our position as the leading airline in the Baltic States.

“At the beginning of May, we launched 15 new destinations from all our home bases, including seven new countries in Southeast Europe.

“This expansion offers our customers even wider travel opportunities this summer. Additionally, we recently announced our new Pop-Up flights, featuring routes from Riga to Liepaja and from Tallinn to Palma de Mallorca.

“We look forward to announcing even more exciting destinations within this concept. These developments are expected to further boost our traffic across the Baltic region and beyond.”
