“2023 was a very successful year of growth for airBaltic.”

“With a record-breaking revenue of well above half a billion euros, the highest profit in the company’s history, impressive record EBITDAR of EUR 159 million, and other positive business indicators, airBaltic has surpassed the pre-pandemic level.”

“airBaltic has started 2024 on a strong note, and currently, our focus is on continuing our path to a potential initial public offering (IPO).”

“Our core objectives remain unchanged – to ensure the best connectivity between the Baltics and the world, as well as enhance the passenger experience and deliver a fundamental contribution to the economy”.

It remains clear that airBaltic will continue this strong momentum as we progress further into 2024.

In conclusion, airBaltic had a very successful 2023, and has been able to turn around things substantially.

Going into 2024, all eyes will be on how the airline will continue to grow, especially with a significant delivery backlog.

The all-A220 operator will continue to add routes as more capacity becomes available to do so.

But for now, let’s see how the next few years ahead performs for airBaltic.
