1/ New destinations coming up in 2017

We are happy to announce the launching of new direct flights from the Baltics in the spring of 2017. Where would you like to travel next year? Choose your destination and book your trip at airbaltic.com.

Riga – Stavanger

The locals say that Stavanger is a city of highs, as it is surrounded by beautiful fjords and breathtaking mountains. It also boasts an active cultural life. Being the capital of Norway’s oil industry, the city is booming with energy and countless opportunities and attracts people from all over the world.

Riga – Aberdeen

The Granite City is a true Scottish beauty, but don’t let the pristine coastline with all of its cliffs, beaches and mysterious castles fool you – Aberdeen is also open for some serious business, as it holds one of the oldest and widest ports in the region and is the oil centre of Scotland.

Riga – Geneva

The second largest city in Switzerland is a booming finance centre with lots to offer. However, if you wish to take a break from Geneva’s busy city life, the mountains are just a stone’s throw away, and you can see the majestic Mont Blanc right from the city centre.

Riga – Gothenburg

The “second capital” of Sweden has long been at the crossroads of trade and culture. Today, the city is known for gourmet restaurants that offer exquisite seafood, contemporary art, Swedish design and an active culture life. Gothenburg is also a large trading centre and one of the best logistics locations in Sweden.

Riga – Catania

Located at the foot of Mount Etna, this lovely Sicilian town is a wonderful combination of the ancient and the modern. The historic core with its Baroque architecture is a UNESCO World Heritage site, while the impressive skyline will remain etched in your memory. And of course, the sea and the food… you can never have too much of Sicily.

Riga – Tampere

Located in the largest lake district in Europe, Tampere is the second largest city in Finland, yet it has managed to maintain a casual and friendly atmosphere. Its visitors love the cosy cafés and captivating museums that have found home in redeveloped industrial buildings as well as the fantastic views over two lakes. 

Riga – Odessa

Odessa is a port city on the Black Sea in southern Ukraine. It’s known for its beaches and 19th-century architecture, including the Odessa Opera and Ballet Theatre. The monumental Potemkin Stairs, immortalised in The Battleship Potemkin (1925), lead down to the waterfront and the Vorontsov Lighthouse. Running parallel to the shore, the grand Primorsky Boulevard is a popular promenade lined with mansions and monuments. Now, this pearl of the Black Sea will be accessible with direct flights from Riga.


 

2/ Expanding flight network from Vilnius

From March 26, two new direct routes will join airBaltic’s flight network from Vilnius.
Passengers from the Lithuanian capital will be able to fly non-stop to Paris, the city of romance, fashion, croissants and much, much more. Flights will operate four times per week, with one-way tickets starting at EUR 39.
Another newcomer will be Munich: the friendliest metropolis in Germany, the heart of Bavaria and the hometown of Oktoberfest. Flights will operate three times per week, with one-way ticket prices starting at EUR 39.
