On 31 October, airBaltic will start flights from its home base in Riga to Milan Linate airport and end services to Milan Malpensa.
Tero Taskila, airBaltic’s chief commercial officer, explained, “Milan Linate airport is just 8 km away from the city centre, and this is a huge improvement for airBaltic‘s passengers who travel for business or leisure. Moreover, Linate offers twice as many connection flights for airBaltic passengers to/from other domestic airports in Italy, compared to Malpensa.”
airBaltic will operate daily flights between Riga and Milan Linate using Boeing 737 aircraft for a flight that will last 2 hours and 50 minutes.
Until 30 October, airBaltic will operate flights to Milan Malpensa airport. From Linate airport, airBaltic can offer connections and destinations in Italy – in co-operation with its codeshare partner Alitalia – to/from Alghero, Brindisi, Bari, Cagliari, Crotone, Fontanarossa, Naples, Palermo, Pescara, Reggio di Calabria.
