British Airways’ first flight to Latvia touched down at Riga Airport


The inaugural service received a warm local welcome as it taxied to stand, with traditional drummers greeting customers as they stepped off the aircraft.

British Airways’ first flight from London Heathrow to Latvia, in more than 15 years, touched down at Riga International Airport (RIX).

This winter, British Airways will operate three times a week between its home at Heathrow Terminal 5 and the Latvian capital, with flights departing on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays.  Flights are operated by a mix of A320 and A321 aircraft.

The connection with Heathrow Airport is a great addition to the Riga Airport’s network of destinations. We expect that it will be especially appreciated by the corporate environment. However, regardless of the reason for traveling – a business trip or a leisure trip, direct traffic with Heathrow and from it to further destinations in the world is a significant benefit for Baltic passengers.
