Without further ado, let’s get into it…

Commenting on this was Martin Gauss, the CEO of airBaltic:

“We at airBaltic are glad to mark the launch of our seasonal base in Gran Canaria. As we station two aircraft in Gran Canaria, we will connect this wonderful island with destinations in Northern Europe.”

“This is the first seasonal base of airBaltic, as well as the first base outside of the Baltics and Finland.”

“By tapping into the strong and growing demand during the winter months between Northern Europe and the Canary Islands, we will also increase our aircraft utilization.”

All eyes will be on how these services perform going into the Winter, as well as whether there are grounds to expand this further going into the future.
