New Riga?Tartu service by airBaltic
On 3 July, Latvian airline airBaltic will launch nonstop flights between Riga and the second largest city in Estonia, Tartu. The service will also offer convenient connections for those originating in Tartu to destinations in western Europe, Scandinavia, the CIS and the Mediterranean region.
Flights will operate from Riga to Tartu four times a week – on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays. The flights will be offered on Fokker 50 aircraft and will last 50 minutes. One-way ticket prices start at LVL 29 (€41), including airport and transaction fees.
airBaltic chief commercial officer Tero Taskila commented, “We are delighted that airBaltic will write history as the first airline to offer an international route from Tartu airport. airBaltic is the second biggest carrier in Estonia and we naturally want to offer extra convenience for our customers in Tartu by opening this new route. It means that people from southern Estonia can travel via Riga to destinations such as Berlin, Zurich, Venice, Vienna, Moscow, Tashkent, and others.”
