After receiving all of the necessary permissions, airBaltic plans to resume direct flights from Riga to Paris on June 9, two days earlier than planned before.
Martin Gauss, CEO of airBaltic: "Until the crisis began, we provided the best connectivity to and from all three Baltic capitals. We will continue this path by gradually adding new destination to our route map and guaranteeing safe and convenient travel for our passengers."
"The safety and health of our passengers, our employees and the society are our priorities. We have introduced strong safety measures and our 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," Martin Gauss added.
airBaltic is in close cooperation with the authorities to monitor the situation and is flexible to adjust the flight schedule if needed. 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.
Currently airBaltic performs direct flights from Riga to Tallinn, Vilnius, Oslo, Frankfurt, Amsterdam, Helsinki, Munich, Berlin and Hamburg. The airline will also soon resume flights to Vienna and Dusseldorf. In addition, airBaltic offers various direct services from Tallinn and Vilnius.
Full schedule and tickets for the flights are available on the airBaltic website. In addition, a temporary offer for all new airBaltic reservations made by June 30, 2020 is available, offering passengers to rebook them without an additional fee to a new date. Only one date change is permitted.
