Extend your summer in southern Europe!

Don’t want to let that summer feeling go? We operate many seasonal routes until the end of October, and they’re perfect for extending your summer with a vacation to the warm waters of the southern seas. Explore magnificent Croatia with two flights per week to Dubrovnik, the Pearl of the Adriatic, and the blue waters of Rijeka. Dive into the magic of the Mediterranean with flights to Nice four times per week. Fly to the party heaven of Palma de Mallorca once per week and twice per week to Malta, where the sun shines 300 days a year. Live la dolce vita in picturesque Olbia and Catania with flights once a week or in the cultural gem of Venice with two flights per week. Greece has something to offer for everyone. For a dose of culture and history, head to Athens with flights twice per week, or take our once-a-week flights for a swim in the shimmering turquoise waters of Thessaloniki and a relaxing island getaway to Rhodes. Book your tickets at to get the best prices, starting from EUR 79 one way.


New flights to the United Arab Emirates

From October 2017 it will be easier than ever to escape the chilly European winter for a sunny beach vacation. With airBaltic’s new direct flights from Riga, you will be able to reach Abu Dhabi in less than six hours. Apart from the perfect weather, there is a lot to see and do in this great metropolis: majestic mosques, modern towers and shopping centres, water amusement parks, the Ferrari World theme park and much more. You can also combine your trip with a visit to Dubai, as the famous pearl of the Arab Emirates is only a 90-minute drive away and there are numerous transportation options. Flights to Abu Dhabi will operate four times per week starting from October 29th. One-way ticket prices start from EUR 129.


The new Business Lounge at RIX airport

If you’re travelling in airBaltic’s Business class, you’re welcome to visit the new Business Lounge in the Schengen sector at Riga International Airport. The new lounge has not only expanded in size to 108 seats; it has also expanded the range of services it offers. A primeclass private suite – a separate room for one or two guests with a bed, bathroom, TV set, and WiFi – is now available. Business meetings for up to ten people can be held in a conference room equipped with a TV screen. A separate nursery and children’s room with PlayStation games, cartoons to watch, and Lego blocks to play with is accessible for the younger passengers. Meals as well as various alcoholic beverages, tea, coffee, and refreshing drinks can be enjoyed in the lounge. See you there every day from 5.00 to 2.00!


We’ll take care of your children

If you want to send your children abroad to visit relatives or take part in a summer camp, but can’t fly together with them, we provide a special Unaccompanied Minor Service. Our staff will care for your children throughout the entire journey, from the moment they check in until the moment they meet their supervising adult at the destination airport. Book this service in advance at the airBaltic Ticket Office or through the airBaltic Call Centre.


Get more with Group Tickets

If you are planning to travel with your family or a group of friends, consider buying a group ticket. This offer applies to groups of eight people or more and affords many privileges – perfect for sports teams, music bands, and other groups travelling together. You can book your group ticket ahead of time, but only need to provide the passenger list seven days before departure. Changes can still be made up to two days before departure without any extra charge. What’s more, you can split the payment into parts as long as it is paid in full one month before departure. Another advantage is flexibility. If your travel plans change, you can adjust the date and time of your flight. Each member of the group can check-in one piece of baggage. Groups of 20 passengers or more can request a free flight ticket for the group leader (only airport taxes must be paid). Book your group tickets at or contact the dedicated group team at
