Wizz Air Opens its Base at Riga International Airport

Wizz Air, the largest low-cost airline in Central and Eastern Europe, today celebrated the opening of its 17th base in Riga. Wizz Air is initially deploying one Airbus A320 aircraft and opening four new routes from Riga to Barcelona, Doncaster/Sheffield, Dortmund and Paris (Beauvais).

Wizz Air is not only adding new flights from Riga, but also increasing the frequencies on the existing services to London (Luton) and Oslo (Torp). Wizz Air is now offering 8 routes to 6 different countries from the Latvian capital. The airline believes its expansion in Riga can stimulate the local job market in aviation and the tourism sector with more visitors now able to travel to Latvia.
