''airBaltic'' begins flights to Varna

RIGA, June 25 - Latvian national airline ''airBaltic'' has launched its summer flights from Riga to Varna (Bulgaria) in cooperation with the international tour operator ''Tez Tour'', the airline informed the business information portal ''Nozare.lv''.

The new route offers convenient connections between the two cities and beyond to destinations in the Baltic region, Scandinavia, Russia and the CIS countries.

As part of restructuring initiatives, ''airBaltic'' has discontinued a number of routes recording somewhat weaker demand in the summer season; this move makes aircraft capacity available for the Riga – Varna service for ''airBaltic'' customers travelling between the two cities and onwards to destinations such as Copenhagen, St. Petersburg, Helsinki, Stockholm, Oslo, Vilnius, Tallinn.

''airBaltic'' operates flights from Riga to Varna two times a week on Tuesdays and Fridays. Passengers board a ''Boeing 737-300'' aircraft for a flight that lasts for 2 hours 40 minutes. Return ticket price starts at EUR 199, including airport fees and transaction costs.

"airBaltic" serves sixty destinations from its home base in Riga. The airline is a joint stock company that was established in 1995. The primary shareholder is Latvian state with 99.8 percent of stock. The "airBaltic" fleet consists of 25 planes - five "Boeing 737-500", eight "Boeing 737-300" and twelve "Bombardier Q400Next Gen".
