If you were starting up a new airline, where would you choose to fly? Well a new airline did just pop up, and they’ve bought and painted up a new Boeing 747. They will be flying one route: from New York to St. Petersburg Russia.
Now if I was going to start an airline, I’d think about offering service that more people would want…say, NY to Vegas, or NY to LA. St Petersburg? How many people want or need to go that cold faraway place?
Baltia says that its goal is to “become the leading US airline in the transatlantic market between the major US cities and capital cities of Eastern Europe, including Russia, Latvia, Ukraine, and Belarus”.
They’ve got a cool idea for frequent flyers…it’s called Freeloaders, and you get a 20% discount for prepaying tickets. And one of their roundtrips earns 15,000 miles. It’s called Baltia…and we give them exactly six months before they go belly up. For more information visit baltia.com.
