airBaltic has announced that it will open a seasonal base in Las Palmas, Gran Canaria (Spain) for the upcoming winter season, which will begin at the end of October 2023.
During winter, two of the airline’s Airbus A220-300 aircraft will be based at the Gran Canaria Airport, serving 10 direct routes.
By basing two aircraft in Las Palmas, airBaltic demonstrates a strategy to optimize crew rotation efficiency and maximize aircraft utilization, being able to assign them on routes through the airline’s already existing bases and served cities. Importantly, this decision will have no impact on airBaltic’s winter schedule, plans and overall operations from Riga, Tallinn, Vilnius, and Tampere. The seasonal offer compliments also the airBaltic current services to the Canary Islands, as the airline will continue to operate direct flights to Tenerife from its four main bases during the upcoming winter season.
