Havas Europe in Riga: no comment at this time on negotiations with Ryanair

BC, Riga, 24.03.2015.Print version
Havas, the Turkish company that provides ground handling services at Riga International Airport, has no comment on its negotiations with the Irish low-fare airline Ryanair, at the same time not ruling out that cooperation could continue.

Havas Europe Operational Director Simon Zitzer told LETA that "while negotiations with Ryanair are still in progress and no specific agreements signed, we will refrain from commenting on Havas Europe's involvement in this process."


As reported, Ryanair has submitted its summer flight schedule to the Riga International Airport, thus, there is reason to believe that the company will continue cooperation, the Riga International Airport informed LETA.


The company explained that taking into account that there are two companies ensuring ground handling services at the airport – Riga International Airport and Havas Europe – the airlines have the right to choose one on their own initiative. Ryanair currently has an agreement with the Riga International Airport. It will remain valid until the end of this month. Negotiations on further cooperation are still in progress.


As reported, Ryanair has already started selling tickets for the summer season, although the agreement in force right now between Ryanair and the Riga Airport expires at the end of March.

Transport Minister Anrijs Matiss (Unity) previously revealed that he does not believe that Ryanair will exit Riga International Airport.


Ryanair at this time offers flights between Riga and 13 destinations in Europe – Bremen, Brussels, Cologne, Dublin, Dusseldorf, East Midlands, Frankfurt, Glasgow, Leeds, London, Manchester, Milan, and Oslo.
