The Children’s Day at Riga Airport Attracts a Big Number of Participants

For the fourth year already, the International Children’s Day was marked at Riga Airport by a fete for the kids of the airport personnel, which this year was attended by more than 100 participants. 
On 5 June already from 9 o’clock a.m., the children were entertained by the Flower Fairy on the premises of the Training Centre leading the children in various games, drawing, painting and having lots of fun.

By completing a special test prepared by the aviation security staff, the young visitors of the airport could obtain the certificate of “the Youngest Aviation Security Specialist”. For this purpose, the children were invited to find prohibited articles in several baggage X-ray images.
The staff of the Mechanization Unit and the Firefighting Team prepared interesting activities on the apron. They took the kids for a ride on the specialized airport vehicles and showed them the new building of the firefighting depot.

The Dash Q400 NextGen aircraft of airBaltic drew a big number of kids. They could not only sit in the passengers’ seats, but also put on the aircraft captain’s cap and be photographed in the cockpit.

Meanwhile, in the creative workshops arranged next to the airport head office the children could demonstrate their artistic skills painting at the easels and on T-shirts, and making unique greeting cards.
