Ryanair to increase flights between Glasgow and Riga
23 February 2017


Ryanair has announced plans to increase the number of flights it operates between Glasgow and Riga with the introduction of a third weekly flight.

From 07 July 2017 the airline will add an extra weekly flight between Scotland’s largest city and Riga with flights operating every Wednesday, Friday and Sunday. The increase in capacity is in response to strong and growing customer demand for the route with over 3,000 passengers travelling between Glasgow and Riga every month.

Riga greets visitors with a unique and breath-taking silhouette, beautifully reflected in the Baltic Sea. A stroll through the city centre offers a charmingly confusing mix of a modern metropolitan city, with exclusive shopping, crazy nightlife, international cuisine and ancient traditions in a capital that has been multi-cultural throughout its 800-year history.

Riga offers plenty in terms of sightseeing and entertainment, just as one would expect from a city that has been named European Capital of Culture in 2014. Guided tours normally depart from the Old Town Square. Many of the most beautiful and interesting sights are concentrated in Old Town, so it is a good idea to start your tour here.

The increase in flights to Riga further cements Glasgow Airport’s position as Scotland's gateway to Eastern Europe with direct flights to 19 exciting destinations including Bucharest, Budapest, Gdansk, Krakow, Prague and Warsaw. Glasgow Airports multi-award winning customer service, unrivalled choice of worldwide destinations and its central location with direct motorway access ensures the airport is the preferred choice for travellers from across Scotland including those in Ayrshire, Edinburgh, Stirling, Perth, Dundee, Aberdeen and beyond. Direct flights to Riga are not available from any other Scottish airport.

Robin Kiely, Head of Communications, Ryanair, said: “Scottish customers and visitors can look forward to even lower fares when they make advance bookings for their summer or winter holidays, so there’s never been a better time to book a low fare flight to or from Glasgow.”
