airBaltic CEO: Commitment to the Baltics Remains Strong…
Commenting on the new route announcement was airBaltic CEO Martin Gauss, who emphasized his commitment to the Baltics using big cities such as Dubai & Brussels for this:
“We are excited to announce the largest number of new routes in a winter season ever seen at airBaltic.“
“When preparing for the upcoming season, we carefully consider passenger demand and analyze the market situation.”
“Thus, our commitment to the Baltics and Tampere remains strong, and we are dedicated to improving connectivity in and out of the region.”
“Also, we are glad to expand our offerings with new route additions and increased flight frequencies on our existing leisure and city break routes.”
“For instance, with the addition of Agadir, the second destination in Morocco, supplementing Marrakesh, and all four of our base cities now connected to sunny Tenerife, it is a delight to offer even more variety for our passengers.”
“Moreover, our winter schedule provides good news for winter sports enthusiasts as well, with such destinations as Geneva and Turin. airBaltic is always looking for ways to enhance and diversify its offerings, and this season will not be an exception”.
It remains clear that airBaltic continues to push ahead with growth out of the Baltics, but also out of Tampere in Finland.
With destinations such as Alicante, Dubai, Brussels, Tenerife, and others on the list, it shows that the airline is trying to penetrate very popular markets.
Because ultimately, that is where the demand will be. All eyes will be on the carrier to see what its Winter campaign will look like and whether any further upgrades will be made in due course.
