In response to rising travel demand, Latvian carrier airBaltic intends to add 300 pilots and cabin crew by summer 2022.

On September 21, 2021, the carrier stated that it aims to hire 120 pilots and 200 cabin workers. The pilots will mostly be former airBaltic crew members laid off during the epidemic, as well as graduates of the airline’s flight training school.

“In accordance with increased vaccine coverage globally and loosened travel restrictions, we are ready to scale back our flight operations,” said Chief Executive Martin Gauss in a statement. “As a result, we have decided to rehire our previous employees and add new team members to our crew for the upcoming summer season.”

Gauss further stated that the recruitment intentions coincide with the projected delivery of eight Airbus A220-300 aircraft in 2022, bringing the company’s total A220 fleet to 40 aircraft.

“By employing extra flight crew today, we will continue our preparations for flying with a fleet of 40 aircraft, which we hope to have by the end of 2022,” Gauss said.

According to airBaltic, the company currently employs 1,366 employees, including 200 pilots and 342 cabin personnel.
