Dublin Airport has welcomed airBaltic's decision to launch a new Dublin-Riga service next summer.

The new service will operate four times per week to the Latvian capital.

Dublin Airport Managing Director Vincent Harrison said he was delighted to welcome airBaltic back to Dublin Airport.

He said: 'This new service to Riga will further enhance the connectivity between Ireland and Latvia and is good news for passengers as it will offer additional choice and convenience.'

Martin Gauss, Chief Executive Officer of airBaltic said the airline was glad to offer its guests regular flights from Dublin to Riga.

He said: 'This route has had strong demand for years now and we are very happy that we can add flights between the two cities to our expanding route portfolio. airBaltic passengers now will have direct flights to Riga with the new Airbus A220-300 aircraft.'

Tickets for the new service, which begins on March 31, are now bookable.

airBaltic serves over 70 destinations from Riga, Tallinn and Vilnius, offering the largest variety of destinations and convenient connections via Riga to its network spanning Europe, Scandinavia, the CIS and the Middle East.
