airBaltic has this week celebrated a milestone consisting of their overall team growing to 2,500 employees, as recruitment for growth continues.
Such a figure is the highest count that the airline has had throughout it’s history, which began in 1995.
Without further ado, let’s get into it…
airBaltic Grows Workforce to 2,500 Employees…
airBaltic have said that their 2,500th employee will be a First Officer on the Airbus A220-300, who is a graduate of the carrier’s pilot academy.
The carrier still has around 20 open positions to attract another 60 staff at this current stage. Expanding on this was Martin Gauss, the CEO & President of the airline:
“Reaching the milestone of 2 500 employees at airBaltic is another significant achievement we’ve accomplished together this year.”
“In just one year, we have hired over 500 professionals from various countries, and we aim for even more in the near future.”
“With this accomplishment, we are proving our position as one of the leading employers in Latvia and further demonstrating our commitment to maintain our growth.”
airBaltic will no doubt need to continue hiring, especially off of their recent news for an expansion in Winter routes for 2023/24.
The airline has launched its Winter 2023/24 season with 13 new routes, of which some of those routes have already started.
All eyes will be on the carrier to see how much more recruitment they will participate in, and whether that could be the foundation for additional routes going into the short-to-medium term.
