Dublin Airport has said that airBaltic is planning to launch a new Dublin-Riga service for summer.

Tickets for the new Riga service are available to book.

Dublin Airport Managing Director Vincent Harrison said, ‘This new service to Riga will further enhance the connectivity between Ireland and Latvia and is good news for passengers as it will offer additional choice and convenience.’

Martin Gauss, Chief Executive Officer of airBaltic added, ‘This route has had strong demand for years now and we are very happy that we can add flights between the two cities to our expanding route portfolio. airBaltic passengers now will have direct flights to Riga with the new Airbus A220-300 aircraft.’
