GetJet Airlines Latvia has confirmed receipt of its AOC on 30 November 2022 issued by the Ministry of Transport of the Republic of Latvia. Latvian AOC marks a new milestone for GetJet Airlines, the IOSA-approved ACMI and Charter carrier from Lithuania, in its expansion to Latvia.

Rolands Ramins, Head of GetJet Airlines Latvia, emphasizes that the cooperation with Latvian authorities when acquiring the certificate had been splendit. Overall, the whole company management is grateful for the efforts the team and its stakeholders have put in since the airline’s founding in 2022.

Darius Viltrakis, the CEO of GetJet Aviation Holdings, commented: “The establishment of a new airline company in Latvia is our strategic business step that opens new growth opportunities for our company. GetJet Airlines Latvia, along with its Lithuanian counterpart, will create strategic business synergies that will allow exploiting the charter service potential in the whole region.” 

Both companies in Latvia and Lithuania will construct business processes using the know-how and utilizing the GetJet Airlines fleet consisting of Airbus A320 and Boeing 737 NG type aircraft for intra-group ACMI and charter requests. Moreover, Latvian AOC representatives have revealed plans to add more aircraft to the fleet next year as the demand in the commercial flight segment is growing.

Mr. Ramins said: “As AOC holders, we are well placed to develop many new opportunities for business growth, using our experience, market expertise, and the strength of our team to ensure maximum results with our partners.”
