AirBaltic is launching a new flight to the Greek island of Santorini from its Riga hub in the hope that Europe’s Covid-19 vaccination programme will allow summer holidays to happen
The new flight will be operated on a weekly basis from June 5, with an Airbus A220-300 aircraft being the metal of choice.
AirBaltic CEO Martin Gauss said: “This summer season we are planning to connect Riga with many sunny destinations in the Mediterranean Sea region.
“We are delighted to offer safe and convenient direct travel options for travellers between Riga and the well-known Greece island Santorini.
“We are getting ready for the upcoming summer season with improved route map, and we believe that might be the time when the epidemiological situation improves and the demand for air travel increases.”
