The new service offers convenient travel between the two cities, three times per week using a Bombardier CS300 aircraft for a flight that will last approximately 5 hours and 15 minutes.
One-way ticket prices start at 159 EUR, including airport fees and transaction costs.
Wolfgang Reuss, Senior Vice President of Network Management at airBaltic said "We are delighted to launch flights between Riga and Almaty for the summer season of 2018. Thanks to our modernised fleet with CS300 aircraft we now can reach further destinations... The new route from Riga to Almaty is the second longest flight on our network."
As usual, airBaltic marked the occasion with a cake.
