airBaltic has launched the new airBaltic Technical Academy – a training initiative designed for individuals aiming to start or advance their career in aircraft maintenance. The academy is now accepting applications for its three specialized programs in collaboration with Riga Technical University, Liepaja State Technical School, and the exclusive airBaltic Mechanics program.

The airBaltic Technical Academy will offer training facilities in Riga and Liepaja, featuring practical experience primarily with the Airbus A220-300 aircraft. The programs are designed to meet the needs of a diverse range of applicants – from secondary or technical school graduates to experienced mechanics.

Furthermore, airBaltic is committed to expanding its fleet of Airbus A200-300 and has set a goal to recruit and train nearly 400 new aviation maintenance professionals by 2030, aiming to enroll approximately 70 individuals annually. The establishment of the airBaltic Technical Academy is a strategic response to these objectives, providing employment and training in three different streams. Through these programs, the airline offers free education with the opportunity to combine work and studies, as well as guaranteed employment.

Key highlights of the programs offered include:
