Wolfgang Reuss, Senior Vice President Network Management of airBaltic: “We introduced direct flights to Geneva, Tampere and Gothenburg only this summer, however, the passenger demand for these routes has already been high, making it viable for us to fly to these cities year-round. With addition of Abu Dhabi to our route map, we are offering the best flexibility to, from and within the Baltic states for business and leisure travellers alike.”
Starting from October 29 airBaltic will operate the Riga – Abu Dhabi route four times weekly with the brand new Bombardier CS300 aircraft. Etihad Airways will be its codeshare partner on the route.
