Latvian airline airBaltic on Thursday published its flight schedule for the upcoming summer season and plans to resume flights from both Tampere and Turku to Riga on March 29, 2021, said a press release.

“The safety and health of our employees and passengers has stood and will stand above all, but we see that people miss travelling. 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,” said airBaltic CEO Martin Gauss.

In 2021, airBaltic plans to launch new routes from Riga to Manchester in the United Kingdom, Yekaterinburg in Russia, Yerevan in Armenia as well as Bergen and Trondheim in Norway.

The airline also hopes to resume flights on 17 other routes that, due to restrictions, were not served in summer 2020.

Currently airBaltic performs direct flights from Riga, Tallinn and Vilnius to various European business hubs and popular leisure destinations.

The safety and health of our passengers is airBaltic’s top priority and the airline has introduced strong health measures, and the new flight operations follow the recommendations issued by the authorities,” said Gauss.
