airBaltic to Launch Riga-Prague

On 1 January 2013, Latvian national airline airBaltic will launch a new route from Riga to Prague, Czech Republic. The new route of airBaltic will offer convenient travel between the two capitals, and excellent transit connections via Riga to destinations in Scandinavia, Russia, and the CIS.

Martin Gauss, Chief Executive 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 announce our decision as soon as negotiations are finalised with our partners.We are delighted to offer Prague as our new destination. I would also like to remind that improvements to the network have given a positive contribution to our ReShape programme. Because of ReShape’s success, airBalticachieved a net profit of LVL 4.8 million in the third quarter of 2012.”
