airBaltic to Start Oulu-Stockholm


On June 1, the Latvian national airline airBaltic will launch a new route from the Finnish City of Oulu to the Swedish capital of Stockholm.



Tero Taskila, Chief Commercial Officer of airBaltic: "In February, airBaltic announced the largest airline expansion in Finland's history, by unveiling seven new routes in a single day. Now we take a step forward, and add the fourth direct airBaltic flight from Oulu to strengthen our service in the Northern Finland. The new Oulu-Stockholm route will add to the existing airBaltic's services to Umea, Lulea, Vaasa, Turku, and encourage business and tourism in the Gulf of Bothnia region."


A full schedule of airBaltic flights can be found on the company's homepage at The website also offers travel packages (flights+hotels) at -20% discount, and a wide range of other products and services.


For 2009 airBaltic has announced 20 million EUR preliminary profit, and achieved 6% passenger growth to 2.75 million passengers. In 2010, airBaltic has so far announced eleven new destinations from its Riga hub including Madrid, Belgrade, Vaasa, Umea, Beirut, Amman, Manchester, Rovaniemi, Kuusamo, Visby and Lulea.


airBaltic serves 80 destinations from its North Hub in Riga, Latvia. Regardless of the point of departure, airBaltic offers convenient connections over its North Hub Riga to the airline's network in Europe, Scandinavia, Russia, CIS and the Middle East.
