Tero Taskila, Chief Commercial Officer of airBaltic: “The residents of Apulia and surrounding regions will now enjoy convenient connections to Northern and Eastern airports like Oslo, Stockholm, Helsinki, St.Petersburg, Moscow and many others. As a city on the Adriatic coast, Bari will also attract visitors from the Baltics, Scandinavia and Russia.”
Domenico Di Paola, CEO of Apulian Airports: “I am happy that for the first time Bari and Apulia are directly linked with the Baltic States. The importance of the new service lies in the significantly improved connections to Scandinavia, Russia and the Commonwealth of Independent States. I am looking forward to positive market response from the residents of Bari and Apulia to fly this route and support it in the long term. "
