Gran Canaria. Today, on December 1, 2023, the Latvian national airline airBaltic launched its seasonal base in Gran Canaria, one of Spain’s Canary Islands. During this winter, airBaltic will base two of its Airbus A220-300 aircraft at the Gran Canaria airport (LPA), serving a total of 10 direct routes.
Martin Gauss, President and CEO at airBaltic: “We at airBaltic are glad to mark the launch of our seasonal base in Gran Canaria. As we station two aircraft in Gran Canaria, we will connect this wonderful island with destinations in Northern Europe. This is the first seasonal base of airBaltic, as well as the first base outside of the Baltics and Finland. By tapping into the strong and growing demand during the winter months between Northern Europe and the Canary Islands, we will also increase our aircraft utilization.”
The seasonal offer compliments airBaltic current services to the Canary Islands as the airline continues to operate direct flights to Tenerife from its four main bases – Riga, Tallinn, Vilnius, and Tampere.
