Riga International Airport is located in the Mārupe municipality about 10km west of Riga, the capital of Latvia. The largest airport in the Baltic states, it operates direct flights to more than 80 destinations in 30 countries. AirBaltic, SmartLynx Airlines, RAF-Avia, Vip Avia, and Inversija use Riga International Airport as a hub, and it serves as one of the base airports for Wizz Air. AirBaltic is the chief carrier at the airport, and Ryanair is the second-largest. It serves about 5 million passengers annually.
Riga has a metropolitan air you won't find elsewhere in the Baltic region. Rent a car at Riga Airport and explore a quirky, lively city that captivated visitors with its charisma. Discover impressive Art-Nouveau architecture, the historic old town, and sprawling parks. A picturesque street-scape of towers and steeples marries well with a sophisticated nightlife and flourishing restaurant scene. Once nicknamed the "Paris of the East," Riga is undergoing an intensive building boom that has prompted UNESCO to warn the city it may withdraw its World Heritage status because of the explosion of hotels and business centres.
