airBaltic reduces Business class fare introducing Business Light
airBaltic has introduced a new ticket type – Business Light. It offers passengers a full onboard business class experience as well as select flexibility options for a more affordable price.
Martin Gauss, Chief Executive Officer of airBaltic: “As an innovative airline we always strive to revise our products to meet the changing needs of our customers. The newly introduced ticket type provides the passenger with all of the services traditionally associated with business class and will increase our competitiveness in the European aviation market. We expect that it will be popular also among leisure travellers.”
On board, our cabin crew offer Business Light passengers a dedicated, personal service and serves a seasonal three-course meal as well as offers a wide selection of beverages. Business Light passengers can check in for the flight at a separate registration counter, use fast track airport security line and spend time in the business lounge.
airBaltic allows Business Light passengers to carry extra baggage – both in the cabin as well as checked-in bags. In contrast to Business class tickets, if a Business Light passenger has a change of plans, these options are available under different terms.
airBaltic continues to offer the best connectivity to and from Riga, Tallinn, Vilnius as well as Tampere, connecting them with leading European business centres and transit hubs. A complete schedule of airBaltic flights and tickets are available on the company’s homepage at www.airbaltic.com.
