airBaltic makes it easier to pop to Poprad

Latvia's national airline, airBaltic, said Monday it was doubling the flight frequency on its service to the eastern Slovakian city of Poprad.

"airBaltic will improve connections between Riga and Poprad, Slovakia, by doubling flight frequency," the company said in a press release.

That means there will be two flights a week instead of one.

The airline, which is owned by the state, will also launch a new direct route from Warsaw, Poland, linking the city with Poprad, Slovakia.

"This will offer convenient connections between the cities and beyond to destinations in the Baltic region, Scandinavia, Russia and the CIS countries," the company said, with the airline's Slovak board member Martin Sedlacky perhaps understandably saying he was particularly pleased with the new service.

Seats are already on sale starting at €29 EUR one way. However, the new frequencies will not actually come into operation until December to tie in with the ski season in the Tatra mountains.

airBaltic serves over 60 destinations from its home base in Riga.
