airBaltic teams up with Emirates for Asia flights


Beginning December, airline passengers in Latvia have access to a wider range of destinations in Asia due to a cooperation agreement between airBaltic and the United Arab Emirates’ airline Emirates. Passengers can fly first to Dubai and then on to destinations like Hong Kong, Kuala Lumpur, Muscat in Oman, the island of Mahé in the Seychelles, Mumbai in India, Doha in Qatar, Bahrain, Kuwait and Teheran in Iran, Karachi in Pakistan and Singapore. The agreement allows passengers to buy tickets from airBaltic for Emirates flights for special prices; for example, a one-way ticket from Riga to Mumbai will start at LVL 305 (EUR 435), to Singapore at LVL 405, including airport fees and transaction costs. airBaltic currently offers two direct flights a week to Dubai, on Mondays and Fridays. Boeing 757-200 aircraft are used for the flights, which take six hours, 15 minutes.
