Passenger figures back on the rise after long lull
Three new airlines are starting operations at Riga International Airport this summer season, giving a long-awaited boost to passenger numbers there, which have remained largely static since the 2008-10 recession.
Yanair will start flying the Kiev-Riga route from May 20, Vueling will launch flights to Barcelona from June 25 and Aegean Airlines will fly to Athens from June 26.
Meanwhile, Latvian national carrier airBaltic is opening flights to Reykjavik and, in cooperation with tour operator Tez Tour, to Rimini from June 5. It is also re-launching a range of seasonal flights to destinations such as Rhodes, Dubrovnik, Malta, Nice and Olbia.
Other new routes from Riga include Tel Aviv, to be operated by budget airline Wizz Air from June 20.
The highest frequencies from Riga this season are to Moscow (66 times a week), Stockholm (49 times a week), Helsinki (45 times a week) and London (39 times a week).
During the first four months of 2016, the number of passengers at Riga International grew 9.5% against the same period last year, to nearly 1.53 million.
