airBaltic and Iberia strike codeshare deal

The national airlines of Latvia and Spain - airBaltic and Iberia - on Tuesday said they had concluded a codeshare deal for flights that should improve the travel options for travellers between the Baltic states and southern Europe.

The new partnership will offer passengers convenient connections between Riga and Madrid through common gateway airports in Europe.

airBaltic serves over 60 destinations from its home base in Latvia, while Iberia is the leading carrier on routes between Europe and Latin America and it flies to 128 destinations in 51  countries in Europe, the Americas, Africa, Middle East and Asia.

Together with its subsidiary Iberia Express and its franchise partner Iberia Regional/Air Nostrum, it operates about 600 flights each day with a fleet of 135 aircraft.

Wolfgang Reuss, who is responsible for airBaltic's network said: “As we reinforce links between Riga and other hubs, our customers benefit immediately from better connectivity with regions where direct flights are unavailable. We are very pleased to add Iberia to this growing family.”
