Latvian carrier Air Baltic plans to maintain “essential connectivity” through the winter months, linking its Riga hub with 40 destinations.

The carrier says it will continue offering flights to “major European business hubs” as well as a “small selection of leisure and skiing destinations”.

It specifies Larnaca and Rome as possible leisure destinations “if the epidemiological situation will enable such flights”.
