Riga Airport recognized as the most competitive enterprise in Europe in terms of service prices

The Air Transport Research Society (ATRS) compared financial data of 200 airports and determined RIGA International Airport to be the most competitive airport in Europe, based on the cost and fare structure per passenger. The winner in the lowest fare nomination was Luxembourg Airport.

“This scientific evaluation proves that, over the years, we have chosen to focus on an evolution-oriented airport development strategy and, as a result, the number of passengers serviced by us has increased four times and a favourable environment for airlines operating at the airport has been created” said Aldis Mūrnieks, Chairman of the Board of RIGA International Airport.

The study compared 69 European, 78 North American and 53 Asian airports. A comparative analysis of the financial and pricing policies of the airports included in the study was carried out to determine the most efficient and most competitive airports in the world. Copenhagen (Denmark), Athens (Greece) and Keflavik (Iceland) international airports also won the awards for airport efficiency.
