 Latvian national airline AirBaltic is set to launch a new route between Riga and Palma de Mallorca, Spain later this year.

The new route will offer convenient connections between the two cities and beyond to destinations in the Baltic region, Scandinavia, Russia and the CIS countries.

Martin Gauss, Chief Executive Officer of AirBaltic said: "Our customer is in focus, when deciding new routes for the summer, and adjusting the existing routes to best meet the demand. Our customers appreciate warm-weather holidays in the Mediterranean climate, as we have seen strong interest in our offer a year ago."

"For the upcoming summer season we will discontinue our Riga-Heviz Balaton route, recording somewhat weaker demand; this move makes aircraft capacity available for the Riga-Palma de Mallorca service for our customers traveling between the two cities and onwards to destinations such as St. Petersburg, Helsinki, Stockholm, Oslo, Vilnius, Tallinn."

AirBaltic will fly from Riga to Palma de Mallorca once a week on Sundays. Passengers will board a "Boeing 737" aircraft for a flight that will last 3 hours 40 minutes. 

The new service will launch on June 1, 2014.
