airBaltic launched a new route between Riga and the Greek island of Rhodes. The new route adds another popular summer destination for Baltic travellers, as well as connecting travellers from the south with Riga, and beyond to destinations in the Baltics, Europe, Scandinavia, CIS and the Middle East.

Christophe Viatte, Chief Commercial Officer of airBaltic: “The Greek island of Rhodes is an ideal holiday destination for relaxation and action seekers alike. With eight months of sunshine, stunning beaches, and green hills, it is the ideal destination to add to our route map. It broadens summer holiday options for travellers from the Baltic region, and strengthens direct links between northern and southern Europe.”

Konstantins Paļgovs, General Manager of Tez Tour in the Baltics: “We are working very closely with airBaltic as our long-term partner. The route to Rhodes is our 17th joint route that Tez Tour and airBaltic launch together. We truly appreciate and are highly satisfied with our close cooperation.”

Since June 12, airBaltic flies from Riga to Rhodes once a week on Fridays. Passengers will board a Boeing 737-300 aircraft for a flight that last 3 hours 35 minutes.
