The joint venture of Scandinavian Airlines (SAS) and the Latvian state established and commenced airBaltic on the 28th of August 1995, though it started operations in October with their first aircraft (Saab 340).
The first Boeing for their fleet size joined in 2003 and this added five more destinations to the airline’s services.
The flag carrier of Latvia is headquartered at Riga International Airport with 24 aircraft consisting of 12 Boeing 737 and 12 DHC-8 Dash 8. The Latvian low cost airline caters 60 destinations internationally, led by their current Chief Executive Officer, Mr. Martin Gauss, who was a pilot of British Airways and his priorities now are restructuring and the turnaround management of airBaltic.

Official Website and Mobile App
The shocking contrast of yellow or green as the theme color of airBaltic is really puzzling me, maybe it’s related to being a green country. This was a nice way to get the attention of travelers and including myself. Even if the words are too small on their official website, I personally love how it is organized. Like other airlines, airBaltic’s page lets customers book flights, hotel reservations, car rentals, manage bookings, check flight status, check-in online, and cargo services.
The sub-features of the site also give customers information about airBaltic’s services and policies. These features can be accessed on their travel app downloadable from the App Store and Google Play Store. However, the mobile app wasn’t updated for a year but is still reliable in mobile boarding passes.

According to several airBaltic reviews, the airline is outstanding with its unique and more-than-enough services. Even if it’s considered as a low-budget air service, this doesn’t show on board. The Latvians were successful in creating a discreet masterpiece. I would personally love to try flying with airBaltic. Feel free to leave a comment below.
