Where to catch the sun this winter

This winter it’s easier than ever to escape the cold weather and take a sunny vacation with a non-stop flight from Riga!

airBaltic flights to Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates operate four times per week. Enjoy the perfect weather all year round, the sandy beaches, the water amusement parks, and the great shopping. Be one of the first to visit the new Louvre Museum in Abu Dhabi opening in November of this year. Or visit Dubai, which is just a 90-minute drive away from Abu Dhabi.

In the winter you can also fly to Tel Aviv in Israel three times per week with airBaltic. Located on the Mediterranean Sea, the city has a pleasant climate the whole year round and offers exciting culture, entertainment, and nightlife. If you want really hot beach weather, rent a car or take a bus and head to the sunny Red Sea resort of Eilat, which is around four hours’ drive from Tel Aviv. Book your flight to Abu Dhabi starting from EUR 129 one way and to Tel Aviv from EUR 75 one way at airbaltic.com.

Flights to Liepāja continue over the winter

airBaltic will continue domestic flights between Riga and the Latvian coastal city of Liepāja throughout the winter three times per week.

Liepāja, the third largest city in Latvia, is located on the Baltic Sea coast and is popular not only during summer as one of the top holiday resorts in Latvia. It is a great culture tourism destination throughout the whole year, with many concerts taking place in the newly opened Lielais Dzintars concert hall. Liepāja also has a long tradition of theatre as well as lots of trendy cafés and a vibrant nightlife.

For those seeking non-traditional entertainment, make sure to check out the Karosta district of Liepāja. Nowadays, the former naval base of the Russian tsar offers many thrilling attractions, such as prison excursions, abandoned forts, and underground tunnels. Book your tickets starting from EUR 15 one way at airbaltic.com. There are also great connections to and from Liepāja within the whole airBaltic network of over 60 destinations.
