The flights will offer connections from Riga onto destinations in the Baltics, Scandinavia, Russia, and the CIS. Michael Grimme, chief commercial officer for airBaltic, said: “We have been concentrating on high-demand routes and added frequencies to 12 destinations in Europe and the CIS already for this winter. “At the same time we have decreased flying on low-demand routes, which makes aircraft available for other new routes.
“In total, we are planning to open six new routes for the next summer, and we are delighted to announce Olbia as our new summer destination.” The carrier will fly from Riga to Olbia twice a week in the peak summer season. Passengers will board a Boeing 737-300 aircraft for a flight that will last for 3 hours and 10 minutes. Stefania Filigheddu, business development manager for Olbia Airport, said: “We are proud that airBaltic has chosen Sardinia as a new destination. “For the first time Sardinia and Olbia will be connected to the Baltics by direct flights. Riga represents an important hub for connections from Scandinavia, Russia and the CIS. “These markets are strategic for Olbia Airports’s inbound traffic flows.” AirBaltic has a fleet of 29 aircraft and serves 60 destinations from Riga, spanning Europe, Scandinavia, Russia, CIS and the Middle East.Source: routenews
