Travel Business Review - 01 April 2019

Dublin Airport has said that airBaltic will commence a four times weekly summer service to Riga.

The airline will operate the new service with an Airbus A220-300.

'We are delighted to welcome airBaltic back to Dublin Airport re-establishing the connection between our two capital cities,' said Dublin Airport Managing Director Vincent Harrison.

'Riga is a beautiful city steeped in history and culture and its old town is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Not only can passengers now fly direct to Riga they can also connect there to a range of destinations such as Tallinn, Vilinius, Russia and the Middle East,' he added.

Commenting on the new service, airBaltic Chief Executive Martin Gauss said, 'Riga is a dynamic city and the key business centre of the Baltic states. We are excited to connect Dublin and Riga as it opens up connections not only to Latvia but also to our wider home region with Tallinn and Vilnius as well as many destinations in Scandinavia, the CIS and Middle East.'

Dublin Airport has flights to around 200 destinations in 43 countries, operated by 56 airlines. Last year the airport welcomed 31.5 million passengers, which was a six percent increase on the previous 12 months.

airBaltic serves over 70 destinations from Riga, Tallinn and Vilnius, offering connections via Riga to its network across Europe, Scandinavia, the CIS and the Middle East.
