With the switch to wintertime this weekend, on 29 October, Riga Airport will change to the autumn/winter flight schedule, offering passengers more than 75 direct destinations. Several new routes are also expected. Starting new flight season, British Airways is returning to Riga after a long break, and these flights will connect Riga with Heathrow Airport in London. This connection is important not only for the Airport, as it will give the passengers of Riga Airport new opportunities to use the British airline's extensive route network in transit through Heathrow, but also for the entire tourism industry. Flights between Riga and Heathrow will take place three times a week.

On 4 November, airBaltic will start weekly flights from Riga to the Moroccan seaside resort of Agadir, while from 27 February, the Spanish holiday destination Alicante will be added to its route network with flights twice a week. airBaltic will offer its passengers the widest network of routes from Riga – 55 direct destinations, while the Irish low-cost airline Ryanair will operate flights to 26 direct destinations.

In addition to the three new destinations, flights to Gdansk, Nice, Bucharest, Porto, Budapest, Valencia and Catania will continue this year also in the winter season. During the winter season, 18 carriers will operate at Riga Airport, providing direct connections with 32 countries and 77 direct destinations. Regular flights from Riga Airport will be operated by 12 carriers: airBaltic, Ryanair, Norwegian, Finnair, Wizz Air, Lufthansa, Aegean Airlines, Transavia, LOT, Turkish Airlines, British Airways and Uzbekistan Airways. 

Winter charter flight programmes from Riga will be offered by six airlines, providing flights to popular sunny winter holiday destinations.Among them, Skyline Express, which is a new charter carrier at Riga Airport, will start flights from Riga to the Egyptian resort of Hurghada in cooperation with the tour operator Anex Tours. The total number of flights this winter season is forecast to be 14 % higher than in the autumn/ winter 2022-2023.

Riga Airport reminds that on the night of 28 to 29 October, there will be transition to wintertime and the clocks will have to be turned back one hour. We encourage passengers whose flights are scheduled for Sunday, 29 October, to pay extra attention to this and plan their arrival at the Airport accordingly.
