Latvian airline airBaltic announces that as of October 2 it temporarily suspends flights from Riga to Liepaja. All connections are currently suspended until October 24.
Martin Gauss, CEO of airBaltic: “Providing the best connectivity in the Baltics, we continue to ensure flights on more than 50 routes all across Europe. Unfortunately, travel restrictions have severely influenced our operations and currently we can’t justify performing flights to Liepaja, which currently see very little demand. I am confident that the route will return to our network soon.”
Currently airBaltic performs direct flights from Riga, Tallinn and Vilnius to various European business hubs and popular leisure destinations. A complete schedule of airBaltic flights can be found on the company's homepage at www.airbaltic.com.
The safety and health of our passengers is airBaltic’s top priority. airBaltic has introduced strong health measures and the new flight operations follow the recommendations issued by authorities. All passengers on board of airBaltic aircraft are provided with a complimentary basic care kit consisting of a protective face mask and disinfection wipes.
Passengers are strongly suggested to check the travel regulations and airport restrictions on the official websites or with local embassies before travelling. Regulations are changing rapidly and vary per country, therefore always make sure you have the latest information to have a smooth journey.
