airBaltic launches direct service between Riga and Abu Dhabi
Latvian airline airBaltic, in codeshare cooperation with Etihad Airways, will launch a direct service between the Latvian capital Riga and Abu Dhabi, beginning on October 29, 2017.
With a frequency of four flights a week, the flights will depart from Abu Dhabi at 9:45 in the morning, providing travellers from UAE and surrounding Gulf countries with convenient access not only to the Baltic States of Latvia, Estonia, and Lithuania, but also to the Northern European destinations of Finland, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, and Russia.
To promote the flights and act as the airlines general sales agent (GSA) within UAE, airBaltic has selected AVIAREPS, the global leader in tourism, aviation, and hospitality representation.
Martin Gauss, chief executive officer of airBaltic, said: We are delighted to link Latvia and the UAE with our brand-new Bombardier aircraft. Riga is a notable business and leisure hub in Northern Europe, attracting millions of passengers every year. In addition to that, our clients appreciate the convenient transfer possibilities we offer to over 60 destinations in Scandinavia, Russia, and the CIS.
