Additional cheap flights to Riga and Vilnius have been introduced at Dublin Airport by airBaltic.
The Latvian airline has increased its number of services from the Irish capital from four to nine a week, with five weekly flights to Riga and four to Vilnius, the Lithuanian capital, now in operation.
Each route is operated using a Boeing 737 aircraft and airBaltic’s managing director, Ian McCool, said the carrier’s increased operations are "ideal for the pharma-dominated Irish market".
"We have frequent services and good onward connections to a large number of key European destinations," he commented.
The airline has paid much attention to its schedule, which combines late evening departures with early morning arrivals, allowing passengers to benefit from convenient onward destinations including Kiev and Helsinki.
Dublin is one of the ten busiest airports in Europe, handling an average of 60,000 passengers a day, a figure that increases to 80,000 during peak travel periods.
