Riga. 06.03.2014

On 3 June 2014, Latvian airline airBaltic will launch a new route between Riga and the Romanian capital of Bucharest. The new four weekly return flights will offer convenient connections between the two capitals and beyond to destinations in the Baltic region, Scandinavia and Russia.

Christophe Viatte, Chief Commercial Officer of airBaltic: “The new route will be of huge benefit to travellers visiting Riga and Bucharest for business or leisure, in addition to offering seamless connections over our hub, particularly in northern Europe.

For the upcoming summer season we will discontinue a number of routes, recording somewhat weaker demand; this move makes aircraft capacity available for the new route.”
