Double-digit passenger growth for airBaltic in first quarter

Latvian airline airBaltic said April 16 that during the first three months of 2019 it had transported 818,129 passengers or 12% more than during the same period last year.

During the first quarter it operated 12,740 flights or 10% more than last year. The 15-minute flight punctuality indicator for airBaltic during the first three months of 2019 was at 89.9%, meaning that more than 89 out of every 100 airBaltic flights departed at the planned time or with a delay of no more than 15 minutes.

The only negative statistic was load factor, which decreased from 67% in the first quarter of last year to 62% this year.

Martin Gauss, Chief Executive Officer said: “We are satisfied to see a double-digit growth, while modernizing our fleet with the most advanced aircraft in the market. In addition, we have been able to improve our service, offering more convenient connections for affordable prices.”

airBaltic serves over 70 destinations from Riga, Tallinn and Vilnius, has recently launched new destinations from Riga to Dublin, Stuttgart and Lviv, and will launch flights to Kos and Menorca in May.
