Dutch Transavia to launch service from Riga Airport
At the end of March, the Dutch low-cost carrier Transavia will launch a three times weekly service from Riga to Amsterdam, becoming the 14th airline to offer passenger flights from Latvia this year.
“Transavia’s flights from Riga to Amsterdam will help Riga strengthen its direct connection to one of Europe’s most sought-after transit airports, which is a benefit for the passenger convenience and at the same time strengthens the advantages of our airport in the Baltics and Northern Europe,” said Laila Odiņa, Chairperson of the Board, Riga Airport.
In 2021, Amsterdam was the fifth most popular destination from Riga Airport – a total of 85,000 passengers, or almost 4% of the total number of passengers, were carried on this route last year.
This summer season, flights to and from Amsterdam will be operated by two carriers – airBaltic and Transavia – offering a total of up to 17 flights a week.
