Last call for Aviation Club

If you have yet to book your tickets for the Aviation Club lunch with airBaltic CEO Martin Gauss on Thursday, there is still time, but hurry – booking closes at noon today, Monday 5 November. Tickets are available online and members are welcome to bring guests.

Gauss is better placed than many to tell the story of the Bombardier CS300, now called the Airbus A220 and lately embraced by US giant Delta Air Lines (see this issue).

Air Baltic committed to the aircraft at a time few other airlines wanted it and now has a dozen, all with 145 seats, with firm orders for 38 more plus 30 options.

On top of that, Gauss, who joined airBaltic in November 2011, is credited with executing a robust turnaround programme leading the airline back to profitability. It has landed four successive awards since 2014 for most punctual airline in the world.

Gauss is expected to talk about this as well as the next step in the airBaltic story with plans for a harmonised fleet and other future plans including boosting traffic revenues by 2025.
