BC, Riga, 03.07.2020.Print version
Latvian national airline airBaltic has already re-hired 11 former employees who were laid off at the beginning of the Covid-19 crisis, Alise Briede, a representative of the airline, told LETA.

She said that the airBaltic team is currently made up of "more than 1,000 professionals whose skills, knowledge and diligence have been crucial to the gradual resumption of operations with a reduced fleet of 22 aircraft, while maintaining safety and implementing a range of effective health measures."

Given that the resumption of operations is gradual and smaller than initially planned, the recruitment of former and new staff is also taking place gradually.

Briede explained that primarily current vacancies are being offered within the company and by addressing former colleagues, and only then the vacancy is announced publicly. By July 1, 11 former employees had resumed their employment with airBaltic. The airline predicts that this number could increase every month.

As reported, airBaltic laid-off approximately 700 employees at the onset of the Covid-19 crisis, with the the hope that many of them will be re-hired once the airline resumed normal operations.

airBaltic resumed regular flights on May 18.
