AirBaltic is one of Europe's fastest-growing carriers and is currently on a trajectory to 15 million passengers.

The carrier already flies to more than 70 destinations, and with in excess of 20 codeshare partnerships, 300 destinations are within one stop.

Martin Gauss joins us to outline how the carrier aims to grow its network from its heartland in the Baltics and beyond, and how its transition to an all-A220 fleet will enable it to target even more airports for routes and bases.
