CAPA Live: airBaltic plans strong environmental focus post-COVID
Talking at the CAPALive on 9-Dec-2020, airBaltic’s CEO Martin Gauss spoke with CAPA’s chairman emeritus Peter Harbison.
Some of the key verbatim highlights are provided below.
AirBaltic's Mr Gauss believes the A220 is the right aircraft for their low cost hub operations, and that the focus will shift back to the environment, so they are positioning themselves in preparation for that time post COVID-19.
The airline has retired all Boeing and Q400s and is focusing entirely on the A220, which has ‘exceeded all expectations’.
Beyond 2025 airBaltic will look to expand operations with point-to-point operations into the Nordics, but for now is focussing on its hub operations from Riga.
