The Latvian capital of Riga has become an exceptionally popular short break destination in recent years thanks to low-cost airlines like Wizz Air and Ryanair. All flights from the UK head for Riga. Latvia is a small country and can easily be explored from the capital. There is an especially good choice of flights from London. Ryanair have also been operating flights from Liverpool, Leeds, Glasgow and Manchester. Both Wizz Air and Air Baltic also fly from London. Indirect flights are available from many regional airports but these will be more expensive. Airlines offering indirect flights include SAS, Lufthansa, KLM and Brussels Airlines.
Riga International Airport is the largest airport in the Baltic States. The airport is just 10km from Riga city centre. The best deals are usually with Ryanair and Wizz Air. Ryanair fly from Liverpool, Leeds Bradford, Glasgow Prestwick, Manchester and London Stansted. Wizz Air fly from London Luton. You should also find reasonably priced fares from London Gatwick with Air Baltic. Good-value fares are available at any time of year.
