In July 2020, the Latvian airline airBaltic has carried 151 529 passengers or 251% more passengers during than the previous month from all three Baltic capitals to its network spanning Europe.

Martin Gauss, Chief Executive Officer of airBaltic: “July has been the second full month since we resumed our operations on May 18. We are pleased that airBaltic has maintained connectivity in all Baltic countries by resuming more flights to a wider range of destinations. As we expand our destinations, we continue to take all the necessary safety and health measures to protect our passengers and employees.”

“In July, we carried 2.5 times more passengers than the month before on nearly twice as many flights. From our operations side, we are ready to continue connecting Baltics to the world, but due COVID-19 rules that are changing daily in Europe we are restricted in reaching the capacity levels we had already planned for July,” Martin Gauss added.

During July 2020, airBaltic has operated 2 019 flights. The 15-minute flight punctuality indicator for airBaltic during July 2020 reached a level of 97.1%. This means that more than 97 out of every 100 airBaltic flights departed at the planned time or with a delay of no more than 15 minutes.
