In 2003, the first Boeing 737 joined its fleet and the next year airBaltic began operating from Vilnius. It flew to 5 destinations from the beginning, covering mostly regional flights around the Baltic Sea. airBaltic has a main hub at Riga International Airport and two secondary bases in the two other Baltic capitals – Vilnius and Tallinn. airBaltic runs a hybrid business model – it operates both as a low-cost carrier while still being able to provide clients with a full business class service.
