Latvian national airline airBaltic has concluded a cooperation agreement with AirFrance, including code-sharing of flights. AirFrance offers convenient connections via its Paris hub to and from destinations worldwide.
Martin Gauss, Chief Executive Officer of airBaltic: “As we reinforce links between Riga and other hubs, our customers benefit immediately from better connectivity with regions where direct flights are unavailable. A strong family of partner airlines with whom we code-share ensures smooth and seamless travel for airBaltic customers via these points. Current code-share partners include a number of world’s major airlines. We are very pleased to add AirFrance to this growing family, enabling us to offer excellent connections via the Paris hub to destinations worldwide.”
The partnership with AirFrance will enable airBaltic passengers to reach over 150 destinations worldwide. Furthermore, AirFrance passengers from any point in the world will have better access to Riga, Latvia.
