Being aware of its responsibility to control the spread of COVID-19 and to ensure the safety of passengers, employees and partners, Riga Airport has implemented a comprehensive epidemiological safety programme #ForbidTheVirusFromTravelling. It provides a set of measures for the protection of the Airport and Airport employees and the safe handling of passengers in order to minimize the risks of the spread of COVID-19. In developing the programme, the Airport has consulted with Latvian health authorities and taken into account the recommendations of international aviation organizations.
As of 15 May, international passenger carriage by air, sea, bus and rail to and from Lithuania and Estonia is allowed.
Flights to other countries still require the permission of the Minister of Transport. Information about the issued permits is available on the website of the Ministry of Transport.
The current flight schedule can be found here.
Restrictions on international flights outside the Baltic countries are currently set until 9 June. Please follow the latest information.
The current 24-hour flight schedule can be found here or by calling the 1817 information line.
All travellers, except children under the age of 7, must wear a medical mask when staying at the Airport. Entry to the Airport terminal is only allowed to passengers in masks, upon presenting a boarding pass or booking confirmation.
The Airport urges travellers to observe the requirement to wear a mask during their stay at the Airport. In particular, the use of masks will be controlled in places where it is difficult to maintain physical distance.
If passenger has arrived at the Airport without a mask, it is possible to buy it at several places both at the entrance and in the terminal itself.
Travellers are also urged to observe hand hygiene at the Airport and, wherever possible, to keep physical distance.
The Airport has set equipment for measuring body temperature in the departures hall before security controls and in the arrivals hall before baggage reclaim.
Departing passengers will be subjected to temperature measurements to comply with the requirements of airlines that have prohibited passengers with elevated body temperature from boarding their aircraft. For example, airBaltic does not accept on board its aircraft passengers with a body temperature above 37.8 degrees. We urge passengers to read carefully the rules of the selected airline before the flight!
There are no special health checks for arriving passengers at Riga Airport. When arriving to Latvia, 14-day self-isolation must be observed by people arriving from the countries published on the website of the Centre for Disease Control and Prevention (SPKC) where the 14-day cumulative incidence of Covid-19 cases per 100 000 population exceeds 15. The list of countries can be found on the SPKC website.

According to the decision of the Ministry of Health, there are no longer any Emergency Medical Service posts at the Airport and therefore it is not possible to have a COVID-19 test. You can apply for the test in the general way, for example by contacting your family doctor or by calling 8303.
The Airport will look for opportunities to offer passengers a COVID-19 test at the Airport in cooperation with private operators.
Persons meeting and seeing off passengers are not allowed to enter the Airport terminal. Please go to the Airport only if passenger needs special assistance to get to the Airport.
Yes, transit passengers have an opportunity to spend the night at the Airport waiting for their next flight. Passengers travelling in transit should make sure that they have all the necessary documents for entry into the Republic of Latvia and the Schengen Area, as well as to get acquainted with the conditions of stay and quarantine in Latvia.
Yes, passengers who have an early flight, can arrive at the airport the night before and spend the night in the airport.
Flight may be denied if passenger does not meet the epidemiological safety requirements set by the airline. Such requirements may include, for example, a mandatory face mask, a threshold for body temperature and others. For example, the national airline airBaltic does not allow passengers with a body temperature above 37.8 degrees on board its aircraft. The temperature measurement at Riga Airport will be performed before the security control area and passengers with elevated body temperature will be directed to airBaltic employees for further information.
We encourage passengers to read carefully the rules of the selected airline before the flight!
Due to the pandemic, many countries have imposed various travel restrictions, including mandatory self-isolation for 14 days, certain entry conditions, etc. Many countries also have special requirements for the mandatory use of masks, stays in public places, gathering restrictions, etc.
Please read carefully the requirements before your trip and follow the current information.
Please contact the selected airline.
