airBaltic to offer new Riga-Aberdeen route

The Latvian airline airBaltic has launched a direct route linking Riga and Aberdeen.

The route offers convenient travel options for travellers from United Kingdom and Baltic States.

Wolfgang Reuss, senior vice president, network management, airBaltic, said: “We are delighted to add Aberdeen to our expanding route map.

“Aberdeen is known as the ‘Granite City’ due to the large number of buildings made from the rugged local stone which make it one of the most architecturally interesting cities in the whole United Kingdom and a beautiful holiday destination.”

airBaltic flies from Riga to Aberdeen three times weekly.

Passengers will board a Boeing 737 aircraft for a flight that lasts two hours and 35 minutes.

Carol Benzie, managing director, Aberdeen International Airport, added “It is fantastic to welcome Air Baltic back to Aberdeen today with the launch of our Riga route.

“The route will provide Aberdeen holidaymakers with easy access to a number of increasingly popular destinations in the Baltic states, such as Tallinn, Palanga and Vilnius, which was one of the most requested destinations in a leisure survey we undertook with our local community last year.

“We are continually working to strengthen our route network and I am delighted to add the vibrant, cosmopolitan city of Riga to our ever-expanding list of leisure routes.”

airBaltic serves over 60 destinations from its home base in Riga, Latvia.
