The Baltic Times - - COMMENTARY - BNS/TBT Staff

The ini­tial de­mand for the new route launched be­tween the Lat­vian cap­i­tal Riga and the Liepaja port city in South­west­ern Latvia is quite good and in line with the fore­casts, said rep­re­sen­ta­tives of the Lat­vian na­tional air­line air­baltic.

But they de­clined to give any spe­cific fig­ures about the load fac­tor of the first air­baltic air­planes to fly on the route.

The five most pop­u­lar tran­sit flights via Liepaja are to Lon­don, Berlin, Moscow, Copen­hagen and Ham­burg.

As re­ported, air­baltic will launch flights from Riga to Liepaja on May 16, with the first flight in this route sched­uled to de­part at 11:25 PM tonight.

air­baltic will fly from Riga to Liepaja three times a week. Pas­sen­gers will board a Bom­bardier Q499 Nextgen air­craft for a flight that will last forty min­utes.

air­baltic serves over 60 des­ti­na­tions from its home base in Riga, Latvia. air­baltic also of­fers di­rect flights from Tallinn and Vil­nius.
