Air Baltic Corporation has announced extra flights to Copenhagen and Stockholm to be included in the Summer 2000 timetable. Starting 26 March Mondays to Fridays will see the introduction of a mid-morning Fokker50 flight to Stockholm.
From 1st of April there will be an extra evening flight to Copenhagen by AVRO RJ70 on Thursdays, Fridays and Sundays, departing at 2000, and returning at 2340 [R”ga time].
As a result, the R”ga-Copenhagen route will be flown as many as 6 times a day, and R”ga-Stockholm four times a day [including the daily SAS flight emanating from Stockholm].
Announcing the changes to the timetable, Rûta Skujeniece, Vice President, Route Management said, “the number of passengers on both these routes has increased steadily, with the majority connecting on to other destinations. The extra flights give passengers even more flexibility in choosing when to fly to their chosen destination. When you include the additional flights provided by our strategic partners SAS and Lufthansa, a passenger can select from 11 departure times from R”ga.”
The later flights also mean that those people who just want to travel for the day can achieve much more. Says Rûta Skujeniece “Our current schedules already allow passengers to spend as many as 6 hours in major European cities like Amsterdam, Berlin, Brussels, London and Paris. The later flight via Copenhagen extends this option to more cities like Dublin, Geneva, Manchester, Milan, Nice, Prague and Zurich, not forgetting almost the whole of Scandinavia and Germany”
In addition to extra flights to Western Europe, airBaltic has also added another frequency to Ukraine’s capital Kiev, now offering 5 flights per week. All of these flights offer good connections to and from Scandinavia and beyond.
