Flight delays possible at Rīga airport due to blizzard

Take note – story published 1 year ago

Flights at the Rīga International airport could be delayed and canceled due to the strong blizzard, the airport said on Twitter Monday.

Due to the rapid formation of ice, the airport's runway was closed until 11:00, the airport said. At 11:00 the runway was opened again.

Rīga airport asks that passengers who are scheduled to fly from or to Rīga today follow information on their flight on www.riga-airport.com or contact the airline.


Road travel is also difficult on all main roads of the country and even more so on regional roads, particularly A10 between Kūdra and Tukums, and Strazde and Usma. Due to the poor driving conditions, free 'blizzard tickets' for drivers have been introduced in Rīga public transport.
