The Latvian airline airBaltic has received the 2018 ATW Airline Industry Achievement Award as the Market Leader of the Year. ATW 44th annual Airline Industry Achievement Awards are the most coveted honour an airline or individual can receive to recognize excellence in the air transport industry.

Martin Gauss, Chief Executive Officer of airBaltic: “2017 was a record year for airBaltic and we are more than thrilled to be recognized on a global scale by ATW. The strong performance of airBaltic allowed us to increase our market share in the Baltic region and to strengthen our position as the market leader.
