Latvian airline airBaltic has announced that it will be launching two new flight routes to the Greek destinations of Santorini and Heraklion (Crete) for summer 2021.
- Heraklion (Crete) from Riga (Latvia’s capital): two weekly flights as of May 15
- Santorini from Riga: weekly flight as of June 5
Both routes will be operated by an Airbus A220-300 aircraft.
“This summer season, airBaltic aims to offer a wide range of safe connections from Riga. If travel in general will be possible and the epidemiological situation improves as the vaccination levels increase, demand for air travel will return. We will be prepared for that, thus during the upcoming days we will be revealing several new destinations,” said Martin Gauss, Chief Executive Officer of airBaltic.
The safety and health of passengers is airBaltic’s top priority. airBaltic has introduced strong health measures and the flight operations follow the recommendations issued by authorities. To read more about the airBaltic health measures, please visit airBaltic website.
