This summer season, Latvian national airline ''airBaltic'' will begin direct flights between Riga and the Hungarian capital Budapest.

''Customers of ''airBaltic'', when asked about preferred destinations in Central Europe, have always requested Budapest, and we are delighted to now open this new route to the charming city to connect it to destinations in Scandinavia, Russia and the Commonwealth of Independent States,'' the airline's chief commercial officer Tero Taskila points out.

As of May 16, ''airBaltic'' will offer flights from Riga to Budapest four times a week – on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays.
