Flights to Riga from Aberdeen International Airport are set to run for longer this summer, as airBaltic is set to stretch its schedule to include the months of April and September.
Last year the service ran from early May to early September, but this summer passengers will benefit from the Tuesday and Saturday flights beginning from April 2 and running until September 28.
The route is in its third year of operation from Aberdeen, equating to a 40% increase in the number of flights than last year.
Steve Szalay, Aberdeen International Airport managing director said: “It’s great to be able to provide our passengers even more opportunities to travel to Riga this year. Riga has much to offer with Gothic architecture housed within a buzzing, cosmopolitan city centre.
“We’ve been working closely with airBaltic during the last three years and Riga has established itself as a firm favourite among our passengers. We look forward to welcoming all to our new and improved terminal during the summer months.”
Wolfgang Reuss, SVP network management: “Since we launched flights to Aberdeen back in 2017, the route has shown good results. This year we are listening to the wishes we hear from our passengers and extending the operating season for our service by two additional months. In April Aberdeen will be connected to the capital of Latvia, known for its long history, medieval Old Town and vibrant city life.”
