Riga, 05.04.2017.

This Latvian airline airBaltic has over the past year improved its home market connectivity with European and global cities, and added high-frequency routes.

Wolfgang Reuss, SVP of Network Management of airBaltic: “airBaltic provides more high frequency flights from Riga than all other carriers combined, and the gap is widening. Last year, we strengthened airBaltic’s role as the carrier of choice serving European and global cities directly and via convenient transfers, as well as adding high-frequency routes. This year, as we modernise and grow our fleet with state-of-the-art CS300s, our new routes will boost connectivity even further.”

In 2016, airBaltic served 57% of all connections out of Riga to EU cities with over 0.5 million residents, reachable with less than 120 minute transfer at least once every working day; this was up from 43% a year earlier.

This year,  airBaltic has added Abu Dhabi (U.A.E), Geneva (Switzerland), Aberdeen (United Kingdom), Stavanger (Norway), Gothenburg (Sweden), Tampere (Finland), Catania (Italy), Madrid (Spain), Odessa (Ukraine), Kazan (Russia) and Liepaja (Latvia) to the network of cities served from Riga, and will introduce two new routes from Vilnius to Paris (France) and Munich (Germany).
