airBaltic carried 73% fewer passengers last year

In 2020, the Latvian airline airBaltic transported 1.34 million passengers, or 73% less than a year ago, said airBaltic CEO Martins Gauss in a statement January 8.

 In 2020, the airline operated 22 300 flights from all three Baltic States, a third of the 2019 figure.

Gauss said that 2020 will enter history as the "toughest year experienced by commercial aviation".

airBaltic currently operates direct flights from Riga, Tallinn and Vilnius to many European cities.

Health and safety of passengers is the main priority of airBaltic, according to Gauss. airBaltic has implemented a series of preventive measures for epidemiological safety and has been awarded a five-star Covid-19 safety rating by aviation industry company Skytrax.
