For the summer season, the Latvian national airline airBaltic will launch seven new routes for Finland, and two new routes from Tallinn, as part of the airline’s expansion strategy in Finland and Estonia.

Riga – Bertolt Flick, President and CEO of airBaltic: “Finland and Estonia are important markets for airBaltic. With Riga airport having exceeded its designed capacity limits, we are expanding in airBaltic’s key markets. We clearly see that Finland and Estonia are underserved. Offering more direct flights from Tallinn, Estonia, is a strategic step for airBaltic.”
