  1. More than 40 crew members on quarantine due to positive passenger tests for Covid 19.
    More than 400 employees will be dismissed mainly pilots (140) and cabin crew (210) more than 100 cabin crew and pilots already dismissed by national airline AirBaltic, office staff reduction next.
    Repatriation flights started under classification – high risk for health flights, crew members protection equipment issued, passenger services reduced to ensure safe flights, no information that state labor inspection has been informed. Law obliges the employer to inform state labor inspection on increased risks for employee health/life.
