On 4 May  2013, Latvian airline airBaltic will launch a new route from Riga to Heviz-Balaton, Hungary. The new route of airBaltic will offer convenient travel between the two capitals, and beyond to destinations in the Baltics, Scandinavia, Russia, and the CIS.



Martin Gauss, Chief Executive Officer of airBaltic: “As part of airBaltic ReShape business plan we have been concentrating on high-demand routes and added frequencies to 12 destinations in Europe and the CIS already for this winter. At the same time we have decreased flying on low-demand routes, which makes aircraft available for other new routes. In total, we are planning to open six new routes for the next summer, and  we are delighted to announce Heviz-Balaton as our new summer destination.”
