The carrier will begin flights to Manchester in the UK, Bergen and Trondheim in Norway, Yekaterinburg in Russia, and Yerevan in Armenia.

Air Baltic plans to serve 65 destinations from Riga next summer, including 17 previously-operated routes that were not served in summer 2020 due to Covid-19-related travel restrictions.

“I strongly believe that the demand for flights will begin to grow in the coming months once reliable solutions such as vaccines and wider testing to limit the spread of Covid-19 are introduced,” says Air Baltic chief executive Martin Gauss.

“Although flying will surely be different, we plan that by next summer, with certain restrictions in place, more travel options will be available.”
