AirBaltic is launching a new route from its Riga hub to Edinburgh on June 4.

The twice-weekly service between the Latvian and Scottish capitals will be operated by the Airbus A220-300 aircraft.

AirBaltic CEO Martin Gauss said: “We are delighted to announce our second destination in Scotland, thus expanding connectivity between Latvia and the UK.

“In addition to the new route, airBaltic also continues to offer convenient and safe connections between Riga and London, Aberdeen and Manchester in the United Kingdom.”

Edinburgh Airport CEO Gordon Dewar added: “We are always looking to add new routes and we are excited to be welcoming airBaltic to Edinburgh Airport and connecting the capital cities of Scotland and Latvia.

“We know people are eager to travel when conditions allow and we want to be able to offer some excitement through new destinations, and Riga is definitely one for people to check out and experience one of the finest cities in the Baltics.”
