Ohh, I did not know that they got a new facility is that one which is is still in building process ? I dont know if related, but some of their 737 were withdrawn from service for some week or so and massive loads of flights were cnx ?!? Probaly this was in January
001: Passenger growth for RIX
is massive and for sure there is space for two carriers in RIX
, but take in mind that the yields are quite low on the labour routes to Dublin, London etc. So the tendency is that prices decrease on all routes were BT
get new competetion. If a Ryanair can earn money with a fare of 40 EUR it doesnt mean that Air Baltic can. The result will be full planes for both airlines, but with every pax BT
is transporting the results will be more negative. As an good example you can take SkyEurope, they have also full planes but with every passenger losses increasing.
missed the train and for them only possible to survive on long run is to lower either the costs per seat (Boeing 737-800 or -900) and the operating costs at the airports or to change to low capacity and to concentrate on business pax, but this train they also missed as they dont offer any service at all and the business class product is a shame. So they really need starting to think.....
