Air Baltic About Air Baltic

Air Baltic or AS Air Baltic Corporation is the national airline of Latvia, whose main base airport is Riga International Airport, located in the capital of Latvia, Riga. airBaltic combines the business models of traditional as well as low-cost airlines. The airline was founded on August 28, 1995. In 1996, Air Baltic began to develop its fleet with the acquisition of numerous aircraft. In 1997, the company created a cargo subsidiary. In 2003, the first Boeing 737 joined the Air Baltic fleet. In June 2004, airBaltic opened a hub in Vilnius and started direct flights to a number of European destinations. Thus, it became the first airline in the Baltic to take advantage of the opening of the aviation market in the EU, which permits accession and operation from another state. In January 2009, the Scandinavian company SAS sold its shares in the company, which amounted to 47.2%, to the Air Baltic group.
