RIGA, April 8 – Sputnik. The Russian low-cost airline Pobeda plans to resume flights to Riga from May 7, according to the carrier’s website.
“Flights will resume on May 7 from Vnukovo airport and will be operated once a week – on Fridays,” the airline said in a statement. The sale of tickets for flights to the capital of Latvia is already open.
As a reminder, since March 17, air flights from Latvia to third countries have been resumed, and charter flights are also allowed. The national carrier airBaltic was the first to start operating flights to Kiev. Since March 28, the carrier has resumed flights on routes from Riga to Tbilisi, Tel Aviv, Moscow, St. Petersburg and Minsk. Belavia, Turkish Airlines, Uzbekistan Airways, Wizz Air and Aeroflot also resumed regular flights from Riga to third countries.
On April 4, direct flights between Riga and St. Petersburg were resumed. In total, 16 flights will be operated during April, four per week. The planes will fly on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays.
Upon returning from a trip to third countries, made without good reason, Latvians need to take a COVID-19 test at their own expense. If the test is negative, the person can go home for 10 days of self-isolation. If the test result is positive or the person refuses to do it, he must go to mandatory isolation in one of the hotels that provide such a service.
