Air Baltic starts Air Baltic Training centre in Riga, Latvia


The Latvian national airline AirBaltic has established a training centre at Riga International Airport to provide commercial aviation training for flight crews

Riga – airBaltic President and CEO Bertolt Flick: “After a profitable year 2009, airBaltic is rapidly expanding. airBaltic Training is crucial to meet the growing needs of airBaltic, and to generate additional revenue by providing flight crew training services to other airlines.” 

Riga has a rich history as a centre of aviation training. It is conveniently located to provide commercial aviation training services to airline customers in both Europe and the CIS countries. The new airBaltic Training and simulator centre was established by taking over facilities and equipment of Oxford Aviation Training.

For 2009 airBaltic has announced 20 million EUR preliminary profit, and achieved 6% passenger growth to 2.75 million passengers. In 2010, airBaltic will open at least nine new direct routes from Riga, and has so far announced new destinations including Madrid, Belgrade, Vaasa, Umea, Beirut, Amman, and Manchester.
