Recognition of airBaltic among the top employers is a proof that we were right to focus on open communication, social responsibility and transparency in decision making during the crisis, and it has been appreciated also by our employees. We are looking towards the future with confidence that soon we will return to growth, inviting back former colleagues with whom we unfortunately had to part last year, and also recruiting new talents.
