Airline sells cars during flights

Latvian national airline’s move is an industry first

The Latvian national airline airBaltic announced this week that it will add the sale of cars to its business – the first airline in the industry to offer such a service. The car sales will launch this Friday. Passengers who are in one of the carrier’s planes with at least €50 in cash on them can start the deal. For example, a Mini Cooper R56 is going for €24,699. Passengers have to make a down-payment of €50 during the flight and once the aircraft lands the passenger must pay the rest and take delivery of the car.
airBaltic Chief Executive Martin Gauss: “airBaltic is the world’s first airline to start selling cars on board. Naturally, we still believe that flying is smarter than driving whenever possible.”
