RIGA – Latvia adopts the euro as of 1 January 2014. airBaltic introduced the euro five years ago to sell affordable tickets on its network spanning Europe, Scandinavia, Russia, the CIS and the Middle East.

Martin Gauss, Chief Executive Officer of airBaltic: “airBaltic was the first company in the Baltic region to switch to the euro, as a large part of our tickets and additional services are sold outside Latvia.”
