airBaltic to launch flights to five new destinations for upcoming summer season

BC, Riga , 10.12.2020.Print version
Latvian airline airBaltic has published its flight schedule for the upcoming summer season that will begin on March 28, 2021, the airline informed.

The airline plans to connect Riga with 65 destinations next summer and will launch five new routes.

“The safety and health of our employees and passengers has stood and will stand above all. We see that people miss travelling. I strongly believe that the demand for flights will begin to grow in the coming months once reliable solutions such as vaccines and wider testing to limit the spread of Covid-19 are introduced,'' said Martin Gauss, CEO of airBaltic.

“Although flying will surely be different, we plan that by next summer, with certain restrictions in place, more travel options will be available. As the main connectivity provider in the Baltics, we must be ready for that moment, so we have already published our planned schedule. We will continue to provide flights to various key business destinations as well as to popular leisure getaways,” Gauss added.

In 2021, airBaltic plans to launch new routes from Riga to Manchester in the United Kingdom, Yekaterinburg in Russia, Yerevan in Armenia as well as Bergen and Trondheim in Norway. The airline also hopes to resume flights on 17 other routes that, due to restrictions, were not served in summer 2020.

Currently airBaltic performs direct flights from Riga, Tallinn and Vilnius.
