Riga International Airport enters the global international flight rating


With 66 427 seats available on international departures per week, Riga International Airport ranks as the 98th airport among the world’s busiest airports in OAG top 100 rating.

Krišjānis Peters, Chairman of the Board says: “Entry into the global ranking of top 100 airports by seat capacity on international flight departures is an important achievement for Riga International Airport. Firstly, it shows not only the potential of Riga as a tourist and business destination, but also the successful accomplishment of Riga International Airport as a successful transit hub of the region. This way we can also demonstrate to the international community that our infrastructure and our highly qualified and professional staff allow us to handle large traffic volumes.  Secondly, being among OAG top 100 airports is just another proof of our progress towards the goal – to become a major airport in the Baltic Sea region.”
For several decades the leader of this ranking has been Heathrow Airport in London handling more than 800 thousand seats on international flight departures per week.  Among the top three airports Charles de Gaulle airport in Paris and Frankfurt International Airport each have more than 600 thousand seats available per week. The European airports are followed by Hong Kong International Airport and Dubai Airport.
