The route offers new travel options for travellers from the Baltics and Russia with convenient connections via Riga. In addition, this summer, Sochi will be one of the host cities for 2018 FIFA World Cup and the new connection via Riga will offer convenient flight options to all who are planning to attend the championship.

Wolfgang Reuss, senior vice president of Network Management of airBaltic, said: "We are delighted to launch operations between Riga and Sochi for this summer season. The new route will offer great summer gateway for travellers from the Baltics to the Black sea cost city Sochi, as well as new convenient connections for travellers from Russia with European and Scandinavian airports."

AirBaltic flies from Riga to Sochi two times a week on a Boeing 737 aircraft, and the flight is scheduled to last 3 hours and 10 minutes. One-way ticket price to Sochi starts at E99 ($118.4), including airport fees and transaction costs.
