– The first month of 2020 shows that we continue to deliver a product which our customers like. The passenger growth in January is a good start for us in 2020. We are happy to see that we are on the right path, as in January 2020 we were able to carry 19% more passengers than the year before.”

– This year we will further improve the sustainability of our business. We fly a growing number of Airbus A220-300, the greenest commercial aircraft available, but we are not stopping there. We have introduced various other initiatives to decrease our CO2 emissions, with more to come, Martin Gauss adds.
