airBaltic resumes flights to London from Latvia

After receiving all the necessary permits, the Latvian national airline airBaltic plans to resume direct flights from Rīga to London, England on July 1 and on July 4 from Tallinn to London. In addition, on July 1, the airline will open a new route from Vilnius to London, said the airline's spokeswoman, Alice Briede, on June 30.

“Passengers must check travel rules and airport restrictions on official sites or local embassies before travelling. The rules are changing rapidly and vary across countries, so always make sure you are familiar with the latest information,” Briede said.

As it currently stands, anyone arriving in Latvia from the UK must go into compulsory 14-day self-isolation. 

airBaltic Chief Executive Martins Gauss said: "Passenger safety and health remain our top priority. We have introduced strict safety measures and we are following the recommendations of the responsible authorities on our flights. All passengers on airBaltic flights are provided with a free basic care kit that includes face protection masks and disinfectant napkins."

More information on the new health measures for airBaltic can be found on the airline's website.
