The number of passengers is continuing to increase, and I wish the airport to serve more than 5 million passengers this year. I thank the airport’s staff and management for their contribution, as well as the largest carrier at the airport, the national airline airBaltic that offers extensive travel opportunities from Riga,” emphasised Minister for Transport of Latvia Anrijs Matīss.


Andris Liepiņš, Riga airport Chairman of the Board: “Our joint effort and work has fostered a steady growth in the number of passengers served at the airport. It is very likely that the airport will again serve more than 5 million passengers this year, and the next 50 million in less than ten years.”


Martin Gauss, Chief Executive Officer of airBaltic: “We are delighted that airBaltic together with its partners offer attractive flights and provide comfortable travel to Riga, and beyond to destinations in the Baltics, Europe, Scandinavia, CIS and the Middle East.”


The Riga International Airport presented the 50 millionth passengers with the airport’s passenger loyalty card RIX Club and the airport’s souvenirs. Monta Skābarniece received Business class tickets from airBaltic, and the airport’s co-operation partner JSC “Riga Airport Commercial Development” (“ATU Duty Free”) congratulated the lucky passenger by bringing a special gift basket.


The Riga International Airport served 2,377,503 passengers during the first six months this year. The most popular destinations from the Riga Airport this year are London, Moscow, Frankfurt, Oslo, and Helsinki. On the other hand, the most popular countries with passengers travelling from Riga are Germany, Great Britain, Russia, Norway, and Finland.
