Continuing the development of Riga Airport's digital services, in April the new Airport e-shop was launched, offering quick, convenient, and cost-effective purchase of services such as parking, RIX Fast Track security check and visit to the Primeclass Business Lounge. The new e-shop is available on the Airport's website (www.riga-airport.com), and its biggest advantages are better prices and convenience: passengers can purchase services online at their convenience before they travel, thus reducing the stress that often precedes arrival at the airport and allowing them to enjoy the start of their journey to the full.

For passengers who wish to park their car in one of the Airport's long-term car parks P3 and P4 during their journey, the new e-shop allows them to purchase a parking space in advance. The parking price per day starts from EUR 4.99, and the e-shop offers the so-called dynamic price, which depends on the occupancy of the car park at the time of service purchase. Also, buying a parking space online will always be cheaper than buying on-site. 

It should be noted that Riga Airport car parks are located at the closest from the departures terminal. Distance from the farthest car park P4 to the terminal is only 7-minute walk. For easier access to/from the car parks, passengers can also use the free shuttle service. 50 kW DC fast charging for electric cars is available in car park P3. The same as before, you can also pay for parking at pay machines in cash or with a payment card, or via the Mobilly application and Mobilly Automatic.

The price for a single visit to the Primeclass Business Lounge at the e-shop is EUR 35, while the price of this service when purchasing at the Airport is EUR 45. In the main lounge of the Business Lounge, you can enjoy a variety of food and drinks in a relaxed atmosphere, as well as a great view of the airfield. The visit also includes other services such as showers with towels and amenities, luggage safe boxes and an option to use the conference room. 

The Primeclass Business Lounge is located in the Schengen Area of the Departures Sector, on the way to Departures Sector C, and it welcomes visitors every day from 6:00 to 23:30. The service is available to all departing passengers, as well as those transiting through Riga. Transit passengers travelling from non-Schengen countries must hold a valid Schengen visa. 

The new e-shop also offers the RIX Fast Track security check service. This service is particularly beneficial when travelling with children. For children under 12 years, the service is available free of charge when travelling with someone who has already purchased the service. The RIX Fast Track voucher is valid both in print and electronically for 12 months from the date of purchase. The voucher can be used once, and it is valid only with a boarding pass. RIX Fast Track is available also from self-service machines in the check-in hall of the Airport, and it costs EUR 10, regardless of the point of purchase.
