airBaltic carries 18% more passengers during ten months of 2018

Latvian airline airBaltic has carried 3,553,386 or 18% more passengers during the first ten months of 2018 than in the same period last year. In October 2018, 384,493 passengers or 21% more than last year travelled with airBaltic.

Martin Gauss, Chief Executive Officer of airBaltic: “Even though market conditions in the aviation industry have changed due rising fuel prices and US dollar exchange rate, we were able to continue our sustainable growth path. Airbus A220-300 fuel savings have reached 22%, providing excellent operational efficiency.”

“So far this year a total of six Airbus A220-300 aircraft have joined our fleet, adding the additional capacity we now see reflected in the growing traffic and revenue figures. By the end of 2019, we plan to have already 22 Airbus A220-300 aircraft on our fleet,” Martin Gauss added.
