Martin Gauss, Chief Executive Officer of airBaltic: “One by one we are launching new destinations from our summer route map. Now travellers from Kaliningrad and Riga have excellent connections between the cities in summer season. Kaliningrad is all about peculiar nature and the mix of Prussian and Russian history with beautiful parks, a river and a wonderful coastline.”

“In addition, this summer Kaliningrad will be one of the host cities for 2018 FIFA World Cup and the new connection via Riga will offer convenient flight options for those who are planning to attend the championship,” Gauss added.
