It remains clear that the expansion will continue for quite sometime with airBaltic.

Flights to the likes of Hamburg and Lisbon will further connect Vilnius to the rest of Europe, which is good news all around.

As the Latvian carrier continues to receive more Airbus A220-300s, further route expansion will follow with that.

All eyes will be on how the airline’s 2024 performs moving forward.
