In April the carrier Norwegian will commence flights to the capital of Sweden Stockholm and in May – to the capital of Denmark Copenhagen.

Lufthansa will carry passengers to the Germany’s biggest airport in Frankfurt twice a day thus offering them more convenient connections for further trips. airBaltic will resume flights to one of the most demanded destinations - Dublin,” said Arnis Luhse, Chairman of the Board of Riga International Airport.

Therefore the flight frequency on the route Riga – Moscow has been raised significantly – to 55 flights a week performed by such airlines as Aeroflot, UTair, Transaero and airBaltic,” A.Luhse pointed out, adding that “still, the passengers of Riga Airport for several years have given their greatest preference to London as their destination.”
