airBaltic opens domestic flight Riga-Liepāja

In May airBaltic, Latvian national airline, began operating domestic flights from Riga to Liepāja, opening up new travel opportunities between both cities, as well as increasing convenient connections to 60 airBaltic destinations and the already existing flight connections to Palanga, Lithuania.

Located on the coast of the Baltic Sea, Liepāja is known as “the city where the wind is born”. The third largest city in Latvia, it is the capital of the Kurzeme ethnographic region and a favourite tourist destination along the stretch of coastline along the Baltic Sea. airBaltic operates flights to the recently updated Liepāja International Airport, which lies 7 km from the city centre.

Visitors can enjoy the sun, wind and fresh sea air on the white beaches of Liepāja. Swimming and sunbathing are popular pastimes, and the choice of active recreational pursuits is extensive. There is also no lack of an active social scene with numerous pubs and cafes along the waterfront.

Additionally, during the summer airBaltic added 12 new destinations – Geneva (Switzerland), Aberdeen (United Kingdom), Stavanger (Norway), Gothenburg (Sweden), Tampere (Finland), Catania (Italy), Madrid (Spain), Odessa (Ukraine), Kazan (Russia) and Liepaja (Latvia) to the network of cities served from Riga, and introduced two new routes from Vilnius to Paris (France) and Munich (Germany).
