airBaltic president and CEO Bertolt Flick: “Norrköping, like Gothenburg in Sweden and Oulu in Finland, is an important regional centre. There is much demand there for flights to Riga, both as a final destination and as a city from which transit flights to other important cities in the airBaltic network are available.”
Initially airBaltic will offer direct flights from Riga to Norrköping three times a week, on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays. The flights will be offered on Fokker 50 aircraft and will last for one hour and 35 minutes. One-way tickets will start at LVL 22 (SEK 346), including airport and transaction fees.
airBaltic at this time offers flights to seven Scandinavian cities – Bergen, Helsinki, Copenhagen, Oslo, Oulu, Stavanger and Stockholm. In addition to Norrköping, airBaltic will also be offering direct flights to Billund in Denmark, Kuopio in Finland and Ålesund in Norway.
