13 May 2022

Riga, 13 MAY 2022 | As global air travel resumes as COVID-19 restrictions ease, the demand for air travel has shown an increasing trend. In the midst of the pandemic, Latvian airline, airBaltic, let go of many of its pilots, which majority of them have since been rehired. Now, since there is still a lack of manpower to cope with the surge of passengers, the airline has set out to recruit 120 new pilots, including graduates of the airBaltic Pilot Academy.
