Riga – Today Latvian national airline airBaltic launches BalticBike – the first self-
service bike rental in the Baltic’s, in the very heart of Riga – The Town Hall Square.
Bertolt Flick, airBaltic President and CEO: „Every decent European city has bike rental
stands. We are glad to launch the first BalticBike stand in Riga following the successful
launch of BalticBike rental service in Jurmala. Now residents and guests of Riga will also
have a chance to enjoy summer in the city by using rental bikes.”
BalticBike has bicycles for those, who want to see the city leisurely, as well as those,
who have to arrange their business activities but prefer fast and environmentally friendly
transportation, avoiding traffic jams. BalticBike bicycle fleet includes 100 bicycles. When
the project is complete, they will be located in 11 easy-to-access stands in Riga and
Jurmala. Renting of a BalticBike bicycle is easy and convenient: one has to register online
at www.balticbike.lv or make a call to +371 67788333. Pick up the bike in one stand, use
it as long as you wish and then return it to any BalticBike stand. The rental prices will be
charged for every ongoing hour and the payment shall be made with a credit card. Further
airBaltic presents BalticBike in cooperation with www.nextbike.de – an experienced
provider of public bike rental systems in Germany, Austria and New Zealand.
