airBaltic to Launch Riga- Rijeka, Croatia

On 6 June 2013, Latvian airline airBaltic will launch a new route from Riga to Rijeka on the Adriatic coast of Croatia. The new route of airBaltic will offer convenient travel between the two airports, and beyond to destinations in the Baltics, Scandinavia, Russia, and the CIS.

Michael Grimme, Chief Commercial Officer of airBaltic: “As part of airBaltic ReShape business plan we have been concentrating on high-demand routes and added frequencies to 12 destinations in Europe and the CIS already for this winter. At the same time we have decreased flying on low-demand routes, which makes aircraft available for other new routes. In total, we are planning to open six new routes for the next summer, and we are delighted to announce Rijeka as our new summer destination.”
