In June 2020, Latvian airline airBaltic has carried 60 409 passengers from all three Baltic capitals to its network spanning Europe and Scandinavia. Martin Gauss, Chief Executive Officer of airBaltic: “June was the first full month since we resumed our operations on May 18. It is evident that demand for flights is returning. Each week we carry a growing number of passengers and receive more new reservations. We are resuming more flights on a wider range of destinations to better serve our customers. We also see that our passengers appreciate our safety measures which follow the recommendations issued by authorities.”
