Cake of the Week: Wizz Air’s Riga to Eindhoven
Riga Airport celebrated the new Wizz Air route to Eindhoven, the home city of the electronics company Philips that once started as a light bulb manufacturer, with a light bulb cake. Displaying the creation were Aldis Murnieks, Riga Airport board member; and John Stephenson, EVP Wizz Air.
- Wizz Air launched a new route to Riga (RIX) on 9 December. The low-cost airline now flies to the Latvian capital from Eindhoven (EIN) in the Netherlands. Notably, neither airport is a base for the airline. Flights operate twice-weekly, on Mondays and Fridays, with the airline’s 180-seat A320s. This makes Riga the third airport in the Baltic countries to be connected with the Dutch airport after Vilnius and Kaunas in Lithuania. The new route is Wizz Air’s 11th in Eindhoven and third in Riga, after London Luton and Sandefjord near Oslo.
