The Latvian airline airBaltic in cooperation with Etihad Airways will launch a direct service between Riga and Abu Dhabi on October 29, 2017. So far passengers have made over 9 000 bookings on this connection.

Martin Gauss, Chief Executive Officer of airBaltic: “Abu Dhabi is a major international hub with 25 million passengers. It opens up endless possibilities of planning exotic trips from Riga thanks to our cooperation with Etihad Airways. Most popular such destinations booked at airBaltic homepage have so far been Colombo, Seychelles, Phuket, Melbourne and Sydney.”

airBaltic’s service to Abu Dhabi has been popular among travelers outside Latvia as well, as 30% of the bookings currently come from transfer passengers mostly from Scandinavia and the Baltics.

The inaugural flight between the two cities is already sold out. Moreover, airBaltic has seen additional demand for the flight to the Formula Grand Prix, which will take place in Abu Dhabi in the last weekend of November.
