airBaltic announced it plans to launch new scheduled flights between Riga and Heraklion, Santorini and Naples.

Martin Gauss, Chief Executive Officer of airBaltic: “We are optimistic about the upcoming summer season. If travel in general will be possible and the epidemiological situation will improve as the vaccination levels increase, demand for air travel will return. We will be prepared for that, thus during the upcoming days we will be revealing several new destinations, in addition to Heraklion in Greece. This summer season airBaltic aims to offer a wide range of safe connections from Riga.

This summer season we are planning to connect Riga with many sunny destinations in the Mediterranean Sea region. We are delighted to offer safe and convenient direct travel options for travelers between Riga and the well-known Greece island Santorini. We are getting ready for the upcoming summer season with improved route map, and we believe that might be the time when the epidemiological situation improves and the demand for air travel increases.

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.”

Roberto Barbieri, Chief Executive Officer of GESAC, Naples Airport Management Company: “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”.
