airBaltic’s Winter Schedule for 2022 & 2023

The Winter Schedule includes the airlines’ first dip into the African aviation market, as well as their second route to the Canary Islands of Spain.

airBaltic’s winter schedules carries a lot of good for those wanting to escape the cold, and is now carrying the airline’s first route to the continent of Africa, with flights to Marrakesh in Morocco.

On top of this, they will be adding a second route to Morocco’s neighbour island of Gran Canaria (LPA), with it’s service starting on November 1st, and the Marrakesh (RAK) service beginning just a day earlier, on October 31st. Customers will have a great amount of time to travel on these routes, as they both last until late March of 2023.
