Today the Minister for Transport of Latvia, Uldis Augulis, and CEO of airBaltic, Martin Gauss, hold an official opening of the new airBaltic headquarters featuring the most modern crew centre in the Baltic region.

Martin Gauss, Chief Executive Officer of airBaltic: “Offering a superb product to our customer is priority. We are delighted that our new facility with its modern crew centre enables our staff to serve our customers better, while also reducing our costs. The opening of the new home of airBaltic symbolically marks an important year for the airline, its Horizon2021 business plan and fleet modernisation with Bombardier CS300 joining us later this year.”

The new airBaltic headquarters brings all the previously scattered staff under one roof. The four storey facility is built to suit 362 office-based professionals, as well as up to 600 pilots and cabin crew members using the state-of-art crew centre.

The new headquarters, designed in 15 months, are fully customised for airBaltic. In order to facilitate active communication among employees, the new building features open office layout with 11 conference rooms and other areas for individual meetings and discussions. Operations control centre, call centre, and emergency response centre were designed with particular attention to details. The headquarters also features the most modern crew centre in the Baltics.

The property with its total area of 6,217 m2 is owned by a subsidiary of AS Reverta, NIF Projekts 1, that have signed a lease agreement with airBaltic for the period of 10 years, thus, significantly reducing long-term lease costs. A letter of intent for reconstruction and re-design of the building, and long-term rent was signed in the autumn of 2013. The reconstruction work took 12 months.

airBaltic serves over 60 destinations from its home base in Riga, Latvia. From every one of these locations, airBaltic offers convenient connections via Riga to its network spanning Europe, Scandinavia, CIS and the Middle East. In addition, airBaltic also offers new direct flights from Tallinn and Vilnius.
