airBaltic identifies potential bases in Europe

    airBaltic CEO Martin Gauss said the carrier identified airports in Europe that could serve as bases should the carrier exercise options for 30 A220-300 aircraft (Routes Online, 24-May-2019). Mr Gauss said: “It would be a point-to-point operation to other countries outside the Baltics”. Mr Gauss added: “Our business plan calls for up to 50 A220s to be based here – expanding from Riga which stays a hub and spoke airport – but also Tallinn and Vilnius; we’re adding aircraft to these two bases”.
