Latvia’s airBaltic will be introducing a direct service between the country’s capital, Riga, and Abu Dhabi on October 29, 2017, as part of its codeshare partnership with Etihad Airways.
The four-times-weekly service will take off from Abu Dhabi at 09:45, providing excellent connectivity for passengers travelling from the UAE and neighbouring Gulf countries to Latvia, Estonia and Lithuania, as well as the Northern European destinations of Finland, Sweden, Norway, Denmark and Russia.
CEO, airBaltic, Martin Gauss enthused on the new development: “We are delighted to link Latvia and the UAE with our brand-new Bombardier aircraft. Riga is a notable business and leisure hub in Northern Europe, attracting millions of passengers every year. In addition to that, our clients appreciate the convenient transfer possibilities we offer to over 60 destinations in Scandinavia, Russia and the CIS.”
