airBaltic offers a total of 12 direct services out of Tallinn and is the largest carrier in both Estonia and Latvia.
“One additional destination from Tallinn will be added by the end of the year – to Salzburg in Austria. In addition, we have seen strong interest from Estonian passengers for Tallinn–Malaga flights already before the launch, thus we decided to extend the service for a few months during the winter season,” the company's CEO Martin Gauss said.
As ever, they celebrated with a cake, in this case one with plenty of cream and elaborate fruit decorations.
Separately, the International Air Transport Association (IATA) has announced Latvian airline airBaltic as one of the four airlines shortlisted for its Diversity & Inclusion Team Award, whose ceremony took place during the annual general meeting in Seoul, the Republic of Korea.
Gauss said: “We have been fully committed to achieve gender equality and promote well-paid professions among women.”
Currently more than 40% of airBaltic’s top management representatives are female. The airline has also maintained a 50% proportion among all managers, according to the company.
However, despite the nomination, the winner of the award was Air New Zealand.
