RIGA - Airline airBaltic plans to open five regional officesthroughout Latvia by the end of this year.

Announcing the move, Bertolt Flick, President of the company said: "Compared to Western Europe, currently the residents ofLatvia use services of airlines to a lesser extent. Therefore, there are still many individuals in the country andespecially in its regions, who could potentially become our passengers in the near future. By opening new offices, airBaltic will make its services more accessible to residents of the regions."

The new offices will be located in Liepaja, Ventspils, Daugavpils, Jelgava, andValmiera. A new sales point and a consultation office will be opened in Riga, in addition to the existing office in Berga Bazars.

The sites will provide information about services, book tickets, provide rebooking, rerouting and name change services, provide Eurobonus programme services, as well as selling telephone cards and merchandise.
