Wizz Air begins Liverpool–Riga flights

Wizz Air has flown its inaugural service between Liverpool John Lennon Airport (LJLA) and Riga, with LJLA staff presenting the Wizz Air crew with a special celebratory cake in the shape of a Wizz Air aircraft.The new flights between Liverpool and Riga – which is Wizz Air’s third destination from LJLA – operate twice weekly on Mondays and Fridays. The airline started operations from LJLA in late 2004 operating flights to Warsaw and Gdansk and has recently increased its capacity on both these routes with a third weekly flight to each.Mark Povall, director of air service development at LJLA commented, “Riga is a great destination for both business and leisure passengers. The combination of Wizz Air’s low fares and a value-for-money, attractive destination such as Riga, should prove popular with the region’s passengers.”Photo shows Wizz Air Captain Gerradi Mamentovych (left) and First Officer Oscar Santorum with LJLA’s celebratory cake.
