The largest low-cost carrier of Central and Eastern Europe Wizz Air has commenced flights from Riga International Airport to Dortmund in Germany.
Flights are scheduled for Wednesdays and Sundays on Airbus 320 aircraft. To celebrate opening of the new route, the passengers were treated to a special cake in the form of a rhinoceros with wings – the symbol of Dortmund Concert Hall.
Rhinos are animals with exceptionally good hearing. They can even turn their ears 360 degrees round, symbolising the good acoustics in any place of the Dortmund Concert Hall. Wings, too, are a symbol, because, like music, they raise you above the ground. Initially, the big 3D figure was erected at the Concert Hall whereas now the colourful figures are placed all over the city.
