Tuesday 2, November 2010
The Latvian national airline airBaltic will start operating winter schedule this weekend offering 12 new routes.
Tero Taskila, Chief Commercial Officer of airBaltic: "In 2009, airBaltic made record profit, because we focused on attractive prices and good connections via Riga. We have adjusted our flights to meet the winter demand and seasonal changes. Compared to last winter, twelve new routes are added to our network thus improving connections via Riga to and from Europe, CIS and the Middle East."
Comparing to the schedule of the previous winter season, airBaltic plans to offer new flights this year from North Hub Riga to Kittila/ Levi, Vaasa, Kuopio, Rovaniemi in Finland, Amman (Jordan), Beirut (Lebanon), Umea (Sweden), and Moscow Domodedovo (Russia) Furthermore, airBaltic will operate new direct flights Tampere-Kittila/ Levi, Tampere-Rovaniemi, Vaasa-Umea, Tallinn-Vilnius.
In addition, airBaltic plans to increase flight frequency on several routes compared to the previous winter season. More flights will be operated to Bergen (4 times weekly), Stavanger (4 times weekly), Brussels (11 times weekly), Gothenburg (3 times weekly), Kaliningrad (13 times weekly), Helsinki (35 times weekly), Tbilisi (4 times weekly), Vienna (6 times weekly), Zurich (4 times weekly).
airBaltic serves more than 80 destinations from its home base at North Hub Riga, Latvia. From each of these, airBaltic offers convenient connections via North Hub Riga to its network spanning Europe, Scandinavia, Russia, CIS and the Middle East.
More and more travellers think that researching and planning a European city break is half the fun and they're not interested in pre-arranged trips or escorted tours. Self-guided tours offer a lot of advantages but require some guidance and good resources.
With the recent wild fires, disrupting flights and increasing air pollution, environmental quality is a growing factor in attracting tourists.
