As of November 8, Latvian airline airBaltic will begin flights from Riga to the new Berlin Brandenburg Airport. The last flight from Riga to Berlin Tegel Airport will take place on November 6. airBaltic first launched direct flights from Riga to Berlin back in 2002. At first, the airline flew to Berlin Tempelhof Airport, but moved its operations to Berlin Tegel later that year. Today, airBaltic performs direct flights from Berlin to all three Baltic capitals.

Terminal 1 of the new Berlin Brandenburg Airport will officially be opened on October 31, with scheduled flight operations at Berlin Tegel ending on November 7. The new airport is named after former West Berlin mayor and West German chancellor Willy Brandt. It has a capacity of handling 43 million passengers per year.

During this winter season, airBaltic plans to connect Riga with 40 destinations across its network, offering flights to major European business hubs and a selection of leisure and skiing destinations.

Currently airBaltic performs direct flights from Riga, Tallinn and Vilnius to various European business hubs and popular leisure destinations. A complete schedule of airBaltic flights can be found on the company's homepage at www.airbaltic.com.

The safety and health of our passengers is airBaltic’s top priority. airBaltic has introduced strong health measures and the new flight operations follow the recommendations issued by authorities. All passengers on board of airBalticaircraft are provided with a complimentary basic care kit consisting of a protective face mask and disinfection wipes.

Passengers are strongly suggested to check the travel regulations and airport restrictions on the official websites or with local embassies before travelling. Regulations are changing rapidly and vary per country, therefore always make sure you have the latest information to have a smooth journey.
