The airBaltic and SAS partnership will offer connections between Latvia, Scandinavia and beyond.

airBaltic chief executive officer, Martin Gauss said: “We are very pleased with this strong cooperation. By expanding our partner network, we are offering more convenient travel options to our passengers.

“Already this summer season we are enabling passengers to choose from more than 300 destinations with one stop by using airBaltic partner airlines.”

SAS executive vice president sales & marketing, Annelie Nässéen said: “We see great benefit in this code-share partnership agreement on a number of routes, providing better connections to and from Scandinavia with reciprocal frequent flyer benefits for our travelers.”

airBaltic will put its code BT on flights connecting Riga and Alesund, Bergen, Stavanger, Tromso, Trondheim via such common gateways as Oslo and Copenhagen airport.

SAS will place its flight code SK on direct flights from Stockholm Arlanda, Copenhagen and Oslo airports and vice versa, ensuring transportation between Scandinavian capitals and Riga, as well as connecting traffic from SAS’s whole network and Riga via its three hubs.
