- airBaltic has added a third destination in Russia to its network, beginning 26 April with twice-weekly (Wednesdays and Sundays) flights between Riga (RIX) and Kazan (KZN). The 1,559-kilometre sector will be served by the airline on its 737-300s facing no direct competition. The carrier also links its Riga hub to St. Petersburg and Moscow Sheremetyevo (both flown 24 times weekly), meaning that airBaltic now offers 50 weekly flights between Latvia and Russia. airBaltic’s next route launches from Riga will take place on 2 May, when both Aberdeen and Stavanger services are scheduled to begin.
