Adria Airways' supervisory board appointed (13-Jun-2013) Mark Anžur as the president of the management board and accountable manager for a four-year term. Mr Anžur said the airline will "strive to achieve the even greater satisfaction of our current passengers and to win over new ones. The profitable growth of the company, security and quality services will be our key goals in the future. Accordingly, by autumn of this year we will present the company’s new business strategy for the next couple of years." The supervisory board also approved a measure to expand the management board with an additional member. The supervisory board will work with Mr Anžur to select a candidate which is expected to be appointed by the end of Aug-2013.

airBaltic reaps rewards of restructuring rigour in Riga. Launch operator of CS300 returns to growth
On 28-Nov-2016 airBaltic took delivery of the world's first Bombardier CS300 for commercial service, which will begin on 14-Dec-2016 with a flight from Riga to Amsterdam. It will receive a further 19 of the aircraft variant by 2019.
Just five years ago airBaltic was heavily loss-making and close to bankruptcy. Under CEO Martin Gauss Latvia's national airline has negotiated a successful restructuring programme, established a track record of growing profits, secured a private investor alongside the national government, made significant load factor gains, and is now returning to capacity growth.
The new CSeries order should allow airBaltic to build on these achievements by replacing its ageing Boeing 737s with one of the most modern and efficient narrowbodies aircraft in the world, while also providing additional growth capacity. Together with its Dash-8 turboprop aircraft this purchase should give it a fleet well adapted to the niche needs of a hybrid regional hub airline based in northern Europe's smaller markets.
