Wizz Air to launch flights to Oslo and London from Riga

European cheap flights carrier Wizz Air will introduce new flights to Oslo Torp, Turku and London Luton from Riga in the spring.

The three new routes from the Latvian capital will commence on March 28th, and according to Jozsef Varadi, Wizz Air’s chief executive officer, they represent the next step in the airline’s expansion in central and eastern Europe.

"We continue our dynamic development to reinforce our leadership position in the region to the benefit of the ever growing number of people who can now afford to fly," he commented.

Riga International Airport has welcomed the announcement of the new routes, highlighting the Latvian city’s "advantageous geographical position" as a reason for their predicted success.

Three flights to Oslo and London per week will initially be operated alongside two weekly flights to Turku in Finland.

Wizz Air also confirmed its intention to launch new flights to the city from Budapest and a new route to Bari from the Czech capital, Prague.

Last month, the carrier launched its web check-in service in Budapest, with it due to extend to all of Wizz Air’s airports by next spring.
