"Liepaja flights were more successful than we'd anticipated. We had planned on serving 3,200 passengers but now, two months before the end of the summer season, more than 4,500 people have flights booked," said airBaltic boss Martins Gauss.
He said the company has found that Liepāja flights will leave a positive effect on airBaltic's route network, so it will keep servicing the route all year round.
The company said most passengers from Liepāja use the flights for transit, with Copenhagen, Moscow, London, Stockholm and Berlin being the most favored final destinations.
Starting October 30 there'll be a new schedule with flights from Liepāja taking place Mondays, Thursdays and Saturdays.
airBaltic started serving flights to Liepāja, in Latvia's west, in mid-May 2017, with three flights a week lasting 40 minutes. A Bombardier Q400 NextGen plane is used for the flights, and tickets start at €15.
