Air Baltic joins Airlines for Europe lobby group

Lobby group Airlines for Europe (A4E) has recruited Latvian carrier Air Baltic as its latest member.

The airline operates from bases in Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia and is based in Riga.

The carrier joins as A4E campaigns on minimising the impact of air traffic control strikes, removing “unreasonable” taxes and lowering the cost of the EU’s airports.

Air Baltic chief executive Martin Gauss said: “We are excited to engage with Airlines for Europe - the most important and influential Brussels-based airline association - and its member airlines on their way to form a strong, joint group for all airlines in Europe.

“Representing the eastern European hemisphere we will deliver new, important insights of smaller but fast growing markets within the European Union.

“I am convinced that this will to the benefit of all European passengers.”.

A4E managing director Thomas Reynaert added: “The European aviation market and its airlines are providing unprecedented mobility to citizens and businesses. Air transport is thus an enabler of economic activity and contributes significantly to economic growth and job creation.

“It is on A4E and its growing membership base to ensure the importance of our sector is acknowledged in Brussels and the member states.”
