Latvian Airline Cars

December 13, 2011 by staff 

Latvian Airline Cars, From Friday, passengers on all airBaltic flights will be able to buy a Mini Cooper R56 – provided they have a spare 24,699 euro ($33,048).

They will be asked to make a 50 euro ($67) down payment while in the air and complete the purchase once they land.

“AirBaltic is the world’s first airline to start selling cars on board,” the carrier’s German chief executive Martin Gauss said.

“Naturally, we still believe that flying is smarter than driving whenever possible.”

The airline has just emerged from a bitter ownership battle which resulted in the state upping its stake in the company on December 1 from 52 per cent to 99 per cent.

The buyout took place to save the airline from possible insolvency following the collapse of two of its main creditors, Baltic banks Krajbanka and Snoras.
