airBaltic Announces New Flights From Riga to Naples and Santorini
airBaltic will offer two weekly flights between Riga and Naples from June 4th, as well as one weekly flight between Riga and Santorini starting June 5, 2021.
On Friday (April 9, 2021), airBaltic announced the launch of twice-weekly service between Riga and Naples starting June 4th. In today’s announcement, airBaltic’s Chief Executive Officer, Martin Gauss, said,
“We are delighted to add Naples to our summer 2021 route map. We are eager to offer the best connections between Riga and sunny leisure destinations once the epidemiological situation improves this summer. We are optimistic about the summers and looking forward to offer more and more safe connections from the Baltics.”
Also commenting on the new route, Naples Airport Management Company GESAC’s Chief Executive Officer, Roberto Barbieri, added,
“The new connection introduces two important news: it is the first time that Naples has a direct flight to Riga and that airBaltic operates scheduled flights from Naples airport. It is an extremely positive message in this period as the enhancement of air connectivity stimulates the entire tourist industry. In order to ensure a safe transit, we have adopted passenger-friendly and technologically advanced health measures.”
