airBaltic boosts ex-Ireland capacity

By: | at 08:00 PM | Air Cargo  

airBaltic has increased its Dublin services from four to nine flights per week, with 5 flights per week to Riga (Latvia) and 4 to Vilnius (Lithuania).

All flights utilise B737 aircraft with up to 1200 kgs capacity, and late evening departures combine with early morning arrivals and fast connections to provide agents with next day deliveries throughout many European destinations.

Riga, Kiev and Helsinki are proving particularly popular among airBaltic’s 68 destinations, according to its Irish Cargo GSSA IAM. The company’s MD Ian McCool adds: ‘airBaltic’s operation is ideal for the pharma-dominated Irish market. We have frequent services, and good onward connections to a large number of key European destinations.’

airBaltic was recently awarded the Irish Post Office (An Post) contract from Ireland to Riga, Tallinn and Vilnius. The airline operates a 31-strong fleet.
