Latvian airline AirBaltic has announced the inauguration of a new route linking Riga and Alicante-Elche Miguel Hernández Airport. The service is due to start on 27 February, with twice-weekly flights, and continue through summer.
It is part of the airline’s plans to launch a total of 11 new routes from the Baltics – seven from Latvia, and two each from Estonia and Lithuania – and to connect Riga to 70 destinations across its network.
Announcing details of the upcoming schedule, president and CEO Martin Gauss said, “AirBaltic continues to be the leading airline in the region, and with the launch of 11 new routes next summer we will strengthen our position and our ambition to grow, improving the connectivity from the Baltics.
“When preparing for the next season, we always carefully evaluate the market situation and the passenger demand. This time, we have identified an opportunity to widen our network in central and south-eastern Europe with connections to Baltic and Nordic countries. Therefore, we are glad to expand the AirBaltic offering next summer with convenient direct flights to this region and also increase flight frequencies on our existing leisure and business routes.”
All of the routes are bookable now on www.airbaltic.com – “for the most attractive price levels”.
