On May 1, 2021, Latvian airline airBaltic resumed scheduled flights from Aberdeen to Riga, Latvia. airBaltic has planned to operate flights between both cities up to two times a week with the Airbus A220-300 aircraft.
Martin Gauss, chief executive officer of airBaltic: “Riga is a dynamic city and the key business center of the Baltic states. We are excited to resume scheduled flights from Aberdeen to Riga as it reopens connections not only to Latvia but also to our wider home region with Tallinn and Vilnius as well as many destinations in Scandinavia, CIS and the Middle East.”
Mark Beveridge, operations director at Aberdeen International Airport said: “It is great to see the restart of our Air Baltic route to Riga.
“The airline will operate the route using one of its A220-300 aircraft which is not only one of the quietest commercial aircraft, it generates 20% less carbon emissions compared to similar aircraft.”
