AirBaltic Opens New Routes

20th Mar 2002

This spring, the Latvian national airline airBaltic is opening 3 new routes.

This was announced at a press conference with airBaltic President and CEO Bertolt Flick, and Senior Vice-President Commercial Department and CCO and Günther Sollinger.

The airBaltic summer flight schedule will be effective from March 31. In addition to the present destinations, airBaltic will be offering three new ones - Vienna and Moscow in April, and Berlin from May 1.

Flights to Vienna will depart three times a week: on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays. There will also be three weekly flights to Berlin: on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays. These routes are basically intended for tourists travelling to and from Riga. The rates for tickets to Berlin and Vienna will be significantly lower than those currently offered by other airlines.

airBaltic is also resuming its flights to Moscow. There will be three weekly afternoon flights at times convenient for business travellers: at 2.30 p.m. from Riga and at 6.05 p.m. from Moscow. The flight schedule will be coordinated with the Russian airline Aeroflot, which will make it possible to travel this route every day of the week. This will be particularly convenient for those who have concentrated their business on Russia and the CIS countries.
The introductory rate for tickets to all of the new destinations will be 99 Ls. However, for the first time in Latvia, we are offering tickets to Berlin for the special price of 9 Ls. These tickets can only be purchased on the Internet ([email protected]). Ten days before the flight, a draw will be held to determine the winners of the tickets. The number of tickets available at this price is limited.


In addition to opening new routes, airBaltic has also improved its flight schedule and is offering business travellers new flight connections through Copenhagen and Stockholm to and from major cities in Europe. In cooperation with SAS, airBaltic has made it possible for travellers to reach their destination at the beginning of the business day and return to Riga in the evening. For example, there are eight connections a day to London. Departure from Riga at 6.15 a.m. will get you to London at 9.15. You can spend the day doing business, depart from London at 6.45 p.m. and be back in Riga that same night.
