Manchester stags get extra flights to Riga

Latvian airline airBaltic is to launch flights between Manchester and Latvia's capital and popular stag weekend destination, Riga.

The flights will commence from the end of March and will be offered three times a week, on Monday, Tuesday and Friday for outgoing flights and Monday, Thursday and Sunday for returns. This will appeal to stags looking for a weekend break from Friday to Monday, or Sunday for a shorter trip.

Tero Taskila, Chief Commercial Officer of airBaltic said: “After a profitable year in 2009 and with a positive outlook for 2010, airBaltic continues to strengthen its transit product via Riga by offering another destination in the UK. This is already the 7th destination we will open this year from Riga to complement our network of routes serving Western Europe, Scandinavia, CIS and Middle East.”

The flights on a Boeing 737 aircraft will last just under three hours before they touch down in the stag capital of Europe. Find out more about Riga Stag Weekends here.
