Chair of the airport board Laila Odiņa said that in August, Rīga airport's passenger numbers were nearly half of the pre-crisis level, whereas the number of planned flights is approaching the 2019 level.
“The airport is continuing work on the new passenger terminal project and the development of the RIX Cargo City freight center, so the airport already highlights growth and development opportunities for both existing and future needs,” Odiņa said.
In preparation for the increased volume of passengers and flights, Riga airport calls for both former and new employees. The company is currently offering job opportunities around 40 different vacancies, and an even higher number of vacancies will be announced in the near future. The highest number of vacancies is currently on the posts of an aircraft servicing agent and aviation safety inspector. New jobs will also be offered to baggage handling agents, machinery operators, aircraft technicians, and others.
On September 16, interested parties are invited to the Open Door Day at the airport.
Currently, more than 1,000 employees work in 14 different departments at Riga airport.
