New flights to Gothenburg starting in June

airBaltic is now proud to be serving two destinations in Sweden! In addition to the existing flights between Riga and Stockholm, we now offer a new connection to Gothenburg. Gothenburg, also known as Sweden’s ‘second capital’, has long been at the crossroads of trade and culture. Today the city is famous for its contemporary art, Swedish design, active cultural life, and many gourmet restaurants offering exquisite seafood.

Flights to Gothenburg operate six times per week and one-way ticket prices start from EUR 39 .


Plan your autumn getaway to sunny Abu Dhabi

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 much 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 .


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).

We take care of your children if they need to travel alone

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.
