''The residents of Apulia and the surrounding regions will now enjoy convenient connections to northern and eastern European airports like Oslo, Stockholm, Helsinki, St.Petersburg, Moscow and many others.

I am looking forward to positive market response from the residents of Bari and Apulia to fly this route and support it in the long term.''

''airBaltic'' will fly from Riga to Bari once a week on Saturdays. Passengers will board a ''Boeing 737'' aircraft for a flight that will last for two hours and 55 minutes.
